Forging Identity Through Architecture: A History of the Infrastucture, Architecture, and Geography of the Brockport Campus

Throughout the history of the academic institution in Brockport the architecture and geography of the campus has aided in forging the identity of students, faculty, and staff. This presentation covers the transformation of the Brockport Campus, specifically the expansion of infrastructure, the varying styles of architecture, the geography of the campus and its impact on campus expansion, and the interpretation and activities of open areas around the campus. Beginning with the Brockport Committee estimates for the Normal School expansion, this presentation chronicles not only the events and construction that led to the erecting of buildings around campus, but also how students lived within the infrastructure and the day to day activities that took place. From the construction of the Academy to the SUNY period, the architecture and geography of the campus has played an instrumental role in forging a unified student, faculty, and staff academic identity.
