Abstract

Description

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. Each towering 10 feet and overlooking the Fountain of Freedom pool outside Robertson Hall, 12 bronze monumental sculptures, each representing a sign of the Chinese zodiac, are now on public display until December 4, 2016. The sculptures are the work of renowned contemporary Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei.
