Troy Building, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy NY

J. Wallace
The Troy Building was built with funds raised by the citizens of Troy to commemorate the centennial of the Institute in 1924. The brick and limestone building, designed by Frederick Marcus Cummings, Class of 1886, was completed in 1925. It housed the civil engineering department. Over the years the building became home to several other functions including the Dean of Students office. Student life functions that had been scattered in various buildings were eventually pulled into this common location. Modeled by John Wallace, RPI Architecture 2014 The Troy Building was one of the first buildings to be completed in Rensselaer's plan to renovate its green roofed campus. It was reopened in August 1997. The offices of the President, Provost and members of the cabinet were moved to this location. The second floor includes three interactive classrooms, one of which is a classroom in the round known as the Collaborative Classroom. #1930s #20th #Albany #Architecture #brick #Century #civil #college #construction #design #empire #engineering #Harvard #Institute #laboratory #lime #limestone #New #Polytechnic #Rensselaer #RPI #Russell #Sage #school #science #seminary #state #stone #technology #Troy #Twentieth #university #York
