American University Buildings

Key US Educational Developments – Academic Projects

post updated Jan 7, 2019

American University Buildings

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of American University Buildings. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US university buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the United States of America. The focus is on contemporary American educational buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 4 pages of American University Buildings selections with links to many individual project pages.
