One walk through the University of Cincinnati's campus and you see why it made both Travel & Leisure Magazine's and Delta Sky Magazine's list of most beautiful and inspiring college campuses for 2011: UC is undoubtedly a stunning achievement of modern architecture.
UC began its Master Plan redesign in 1989, with the goal of transforming the property into a cohesive, modern campus complete with architectural masterpieces, vibrant green space, and a stunning central MainStreet pedestrian corridor. Today, the campus abounds with incredible modern architecture, including works from such renowned architects as Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry and alumnus Michael Graves. The design retained nostalgic elements of the original campus, including the clock tower, which was moved to the glass roof of the Tangeman University Center's 90-foot tall atrium.
The campus serves as an inspiration for the university's architecture students, who, according to Delta Sky Magazine, “can literally study among the best.” Forbes Magazine – which in 2010 also named UC one of the world's most beautiful campuses – noted: “architecture students need only step outside the classroom to observe some of the more cunning modern architecture of their day.”
If you're seeking a unique, competitively-priced and architecturally interesting venue to host your next event, consider the University of Cincinnati.
