Presented by: Jeanne Chen, Principal, Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners | James Kolker, University Architect, Associate Vice Chancellor, Washington University in St Louis | Neal Matsuno, Principal, Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners | Adam Padua, Senior Associate, Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners
In the aftermath of riots, killings, and the flu pandemic of 1968, America architecture conveyed its optimism for the future through Brutalism. In the wake of similarly troubled times, campuses are once again ready to embrace optimism through renewal. Brutalism has left universities with a legacy of historic concrete buildings, but fifty years later they’re often unpopular and in poor repair. This session will explore how three university campuses looked beyond the troubled exterior and chose whether to replace, repair, or restore their campus’s Brutalist buildings and put their campus assets back to work.
