Throughout the first half of the century, Caltech's nearly continuous expansion would spawn such architectural jewels as the Athenaeum, a combination Italian villa and Spanish hacienda; Greene and Greene's bungalow-style student union; and the gardens of landscape architects Beatrix Ferrand and Florence Yoch, who thoughtfully mixed the campus's Mediterranean themes with its natural California setting.
Well-researched and informative, this book details the organizational and architectural elements that have made Caltech a model for scientific institutions the world over. Rare photographs of lost and altered buildings portray an early Pasadena with ambitious plans to become a cultural mecca, while contemporary images reflect the Institute's continued dedication to a rich architectural future.
