Brown FACADES (Facts about Campus Architecture, Design, Environments and Spaces) is an interactive guide to the architectural history of the Brown University Campus, in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.

Brown’s Campus is a microcosm of American architecture with excellent examples from all periods of its 250 year history. At the same time, its architecture and art, its public and intimate spaces help to tell the rich story of our unique institution, our students, faculty, staff and administrators. The work on this App began with an undergraduate research seminar in the history of architecture in the fall of 2011. Every week the students met in a different space on campus to discuss research methods, review individual entries and conduct a site visit. All entries were written by the students and then edited by Siri Olson and Dietrich Neumann. We hope to continue to develop the App and hope for feedback from students and alumni to add more “Facts About Campus Architecture Design Environment and Spaces.”
