9780864926234: Building a University: The Architecture of UNB

The University of New Brunswick started in 1785 with a formal petition to the Crown. From its initial shared schoolhouse accommodations to the opening of its own monumental stone quarters overlooking the town of Fredericton in 1829, UNB enjoyed slow but steady growth in the early 20th century. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Fredericton campus quadrupled in size, often using traditional red-brick Georgian designs, while the new Saint John campus pursued a more modernist direction. The meandering course of UNB's architectural development embodies the hopes, dreams, and occasional disappointments of the University in a way that deserves a long overdue appraisal.

Generously illustrated with current and archival photographs, drawings, and maps, Building a University traces the development of the two UNB campuses. From its tentative wood-frame structures to landmark buildings such as the Richard J. Currie Centre at UNB Fredericton and the University Commons building at UNBSJ, Leroux captures the personalities of UNB's builders and architects and the character and value of their built legacy.

From the Inside Flap:

The history of the University of New Brunswick began modestly in 1785 with a formal petition to the Crown. The faith and foresight behind this paper beginning would eventually result in two distinct campuses that are fascinating barometers of the architectural sensibilities of New Brunswick over the past two centuries. From its initial shared schoolhouse accommodations to the 1829 opening of its own monumental stone quarters overlooking the town of Fredericton, UNB enjoyed slow but steady growth. It essentially remained a one-building establishment until the early twentieth century, when a growing number of red brick structures began to dot the hillside campus. In the 1950s and 1960s, the Fredericton campus quadrupled in size, often using traditional Neo-Georgian designs, while the new Saint John campus pursued a more modern direction.

Generously illustrated with current and archival photographs, drawings, and maps, Building a University traces the development of the two UNB campuses. From tentative wood-frame structures to landmark buildings such as the Richard J. Currie Center at UNB Fredericton and the University Commons building at UNBSJ, Leroux captures the personalities of the university's builders and architects along with the character and value of their built legacy.
