Ballinger Senior Principal William Gustafson, FAIA recently taught a course titled Inspiring Campus Architecture: Bryn Mawr College and the Evolution of Collegiate Gothic. It was presented as part of the Main Line School Night, a local educational initiative that hosts publicly accessible classes covering a wide range of topics on design and the arts.

The course, which included three lectures and a tour of Bryn Mawr College, centered around two Philadelphia architects, Walter Cope and John Stewardson, who gave birth to the Collegiate Gothic movement in architecture. The program analyzed examples of the work of these two architects at institutions such as Bryn Mawr College, Princeton University, Washington University of Saint Louis and the University of Pennsylvania, and examined intersections of history, landscape, architecture and preservation.
