The goal of this project was to reorganize the spaces within Robertson Hall to create a highly functional and efficient environment for teaching and research for the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The project created a space for a dynamic academic community, reflecting the values and aspirations of the school. The design fosters collaboration, engagement and clearly strengthens the identity of the school and its centers and programs.
Robertson Hall is the home of the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton's renowned program for careers in public service. The building includes classrooms, offices, a lecture hall, and a small cafe, and hosts many lectures open to the public. With its series of 58 tapered columns, Robertson Hall is one of Princeton's finest examples of Modernist architecture. Minoru Yamasaki, also architect of the University's Peyton Hall and the former World Trade Center in New York City, designed Robertson Hall. The adjacent Scudder Plaza features a reflecting pool and Fountain of Freedom, a sculpture by James Fitzgerald.
An upcoming campus chilled water interruption may impact a number of campus buildings. Repair work on the chilled water lines that run along Shapiro walk will take place over the course of four days, starting Sunday, January 28, 2018.
Chilled water is used for Air Conditioning and, in some cases, equipment cooling. Rooms with high occupancy, or areas with high concentrations of powered equipment may become warm during this outage. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
