Join us for the next Emeritus Scholars Coffee. This time we will be hearing from the architect Ronald McCoy, who will provide an insightful lecture on the topic of new architecture in Princeton. Following the lecture will be a reception.
Ronald McCoy, FAIA was appointed University Architect in August 2008. As University architect, McCoy is responsible for working closely with others to implement the University's new 10-year Campus Plan and to execute the 10-year capital program. He has a key role in matters of aesthetics and the preservation of the University's architectural heritage. Princeton is constructing or remodeling almost 2 million square feet of building in the current campus plan, a remarkable level of development on a campus whose facilities can be as old as 26 decades.
