"Princeton University has spared no expense to duplicate the architecture of Turing's Cambridge, applying the full resources of the 20th century to making much of the campus, especially the new graduate college, appear as if it has been built in the 13th. The University Chapel was a replica of The Chapel at King's College Cambridge and a series of new dormitories work of collegiate Gothic interpretations of rooms in Cambridge and Oxford, but with showers and Central Heating." - George Dyson , Turing's Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe (2012)
