Princeton Architectural Catalog

For Princeton's 250th anniversary in 1996, an elaborate web site was created to provide a comprehensive pictorial catalog of the evolution of the campus. The site included what was at the time a state of the art 3D computer graphics interface that displayed the campus from a bird's eye view. In the intervening years, the site fell into disuse, and the computer graphics engine became obsolete and unusable (More information on the project).

The Princetoniana Committee has, through the kindly efforts of Kevin Perry at OIT, obtained all of the files from this site and is in the process of reconstructing it for display in this museum. As almost 200 buildings are in the catalog, reconstruction will take some time. We hope, ultimately, to be able to implement a modern, 3D computer graphics interface. In the meantime, we will be adding buildings as curatorial time permits.
