University of Cincinnati Campus Heritage Plan - Chapter 3

The University of Cincinnati sits on 198-urban acres north of the city, a site it has occupied since 1895. Today the campus is a virtual museum of 'signature' buildings and landscapes, with twenty important structures built since 1995 by such architects and firms such as Frank Gehry, Peter Eisenman, Machado and Silvetti, Bernard Tschumi, Morphosis, Laurie Olin, and Hargreaves Associates. The campus also includes a series of late nineteenth-and early twentieth-century buildings and landscapes, including the Cincinnati Observatory, a National Historic Landmark property. By examining the relationship of older buildings and landscapes to newer ones, the school will develop guidelines for preserving both into the future.designed landscapes and agricultural lands.

University of Cincinnati received a Getty grant in 2006 for $150,000 to support campus heritage planning.
