Model of Philip Johnson's plan for the Washington Square Campus

In 1964 Philip Johnson created a master plan for the Washington Square campus. The plans included a new library at the southeast corner of the park, in addition to a new building for the School of Education, and a re-vamped Main Building on the east side of the park. Another feature of the new design included an arched glass roof connecting the newly created School of Education Building and the improved Main Building. The glass arch roof would have enclosed Washington Place between the park and Greene Street. The only part of the plan that came to fruition was the building of Bobst Library.
