Morgan Library

-A A +A
1965, James M. Hunter. Southwest corner of University Ave. and Centre Ave.

The design of a Boulder architect, the library was conceived as a series of modular themes that could be repeated. The original L-shaped building had adjoining two- and three-story wings enclosing a courtyard on the northeast. Each level has a protruding zigzag roofline of concrete, breaking up the courtyard elevation and providing visual interest. Recent additions have filled in the courtyard and extended the building to the west.
