Abstract

The architecture of a college campus should exhibit both its form and function. Worcester Polytechnic Institute's architecture was evaluated in order to see if their mission is expressed in the Campus Center and Atwater Kent. By conducting interviews, performing visual analyses, and using portraiture in an unprecedented way, the group identified the essence of the two buildings. Conclusions were drawn about how WPI perceives its history and how the administration attempts to transform the school to reflect its changing motto.
