|Building Style||Collegiate Gothic|
|Building Notes||Wishing to unite the newly developed lower campus (AYP) with the original buildings of the upper campus including Denny Hall, the Board of Regents for the University of Washington turned to local architects Carl F. Gould and Charles H. Bebb. Their proposal was accepted, and came to be called the 1915 Regents' Plan. It specified a northeast-southwest axis on upper campus around which would be centered the University's liberal arts departments. This axis joins the lower campus axis laid down during the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition at an open space left behind after a large temporary structure built for the fair was torn down. This space was later paved with a distinctive red brick and has come to be known as Red Square. Bebb Gould's plan also called for all future construction to adhere to a Collegiate Gothic style. This style is best exemplified on the University campus by the early wings of Suzzallo Library, the University's central library. |
