Time Rockefeller University: A Walking Tour

Founded by John D. Rockefeller Sr. in 1901 as the first biomedical research center in America, Rockefeller University expanded its mission from public health concerns to include graduate education, becoming one of the foremost scientific institutions in the world. So too has the campus architecture evolved, from the neo-Classical forms of York & Sawyer to the Mid-century Modernism of Harrison & Abramovitz. The university continues to develop, with a proposal to cantilever a new building over the FDR Drive. Led by architectural historian John Kriskiewicz, the past, present, and future of this eminent Upper East Side institution will be revealed in this rare campus tour.
