Abstract
The university quadrangle is a space that exists on the majority of North American campuses, yet detailed investigation into the creation, existence and perpetuation of the quadrangle has been minimal. Considering how universities look to distinguish themselves from one another in search of the best students and faculty, the built form of the quadrangle has stayed relatively consistent for over four centuries and is found to be an integral component of the university (Akin 2004). This thesis investigates the University of Alberta’s quadrangle and the adjacent architecture through the theoretical lens of Nan Ellin’s Integral Urbanism and visual methods, such as architectural plans and photographs. My analysis focuses on the materiality and spatiality of the University of Alberta’s quadrangle related to the applicability and actuality of Integral Urbanism.
