Campus Image and Identity

Cover (Campus Image and Identity)
Published 2011
By Richard P. Dober
Planning Types: Campus Planning

The eight chapters in this book reflect Richard Dober’s categories of the elements of campus image and design. Within each chapter, each page displays two campus scenes, chosen for thought-provoking comparison—and a brief comment from Dober regarding each.

Richard Dober (1928–2014) was a planning and design advisor to more than 450 colleges, universities, and cultural institutions worldwide, as well as to foundations and government agencies, the World Bank, and UNESCO. He wrote nine books and numerous articles on planning and design and was a founder of the Society for College and University Planning. He led consulting firms since the early 1960s, including most recently, Dober Lidsky Mathey, a firm specializing in campus planning and facility planning services.

It is not often when someone, virtually single-handedly, reinvents a particular discipline, as Richard Dober certainly did with modern campus planning. He did so by appreciating that university and college campuses were social contexts as much as academic and physical contexts, maintaining this key insight being critical for successful planning and programming for their growth.
—Alex Krieger, Professor in Practice and former Chair of the Urban Planning and Design Department, Harvard University Graduate School of Design
