Transforming the Landscape - Fifty Years on the New RIT Campus


The bold 1961 decision to move Rochester Institute of Technology from a disjointed, small urban campus to sprawling suburban farmland, paved the way for the university’s expansive growth and global recognition: enrollment increased and new colleges and degree programs were established. Transforming the Landscape: Fifty Years on the New RIT Campus details the planning and construction of the modern campus coupled with an extensive photographic survey of its innovative architecture.
