Butler College Dormitories, Princeton University, Princeton, N.J.

Stairs mediate the two ground levels.

The new dormitories continue Princeton's campus-planning tradition of creating courtyards and continuous walkways through buildings. The east wing encloses the Memorial Courtyard, where curved ramps provide ADA-accessible paths connecting primary campus circulation routes at grade with lower-level spaces of the Butler Commons.

Wave-like bays house larger suites for upperclassmen, and limestone striations hark back to Princeton's old buildings.

Lower-level courtyards bring daylight to the interior common spaces.
