A Historic Campus

The original campus for Claremont School of Theology was built according to a design by noted mid-century American architect Edward Durell Stone. The campus was designed to be an open and inviting space that rose in contrast to, but in harmony with, the natural surroundings. There are no interior corridors so each building provides easy access to the School’s natural environment. The openness of the building design also invites plenty of bright, clean, natural light to interior spaces.

Stone was one of America’s first proponents of the International Style. He also designed the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., the original section of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Mo. and the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, India.

A typical example of mid-century modern style, the campus is also available for filming. Please contact or (909) 447-2572 for details.
