Artist's Description

Foulke Hall Dormitory ~ Style: Collegiate Gothic ~ 342 views as of 14 Feb 2012
Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA Architect(s): Zantziger, Borie and Medary. Named for: Walter L. Foulke, Class of 1905.
Princeton University undergraduate enrollment boomed after World War I, which caused a severe shortage of dormitory space, and a series of tragic fires in the 1920s destroyed three of the University’s most heavily used facilities. Looked at in another light, these fires also cleared prime sites in the academic core of the campus for a suite of impressive new structures.
This modernization program on the academic side was matched by a concurrent wave of dormitory construction designed to solve the perennial problem of students living in town. Even after the war, as much as a quarter of the student body lived off-campus, to the detriment (in the view of the Trustees and the administration) of the collegiate experience. The erection of new dorms enabled every student to find a room on campus.
Constituting the third wave of Collegiate Gothic dormitories on the campus, most of these structures were part of a related group of buildings stretching south of Blair Arch. 21 February 2010
