Aliber Hall

-A A +A
1982, Bussard/Dukis Associates

This is a play on the Modernist brick cut-into box style. The third floor of the right section of the building is supported on circular columns; out of this space projects a semi-circular mass. The theme of the semicircle is repeated inside by a glass brick wall in the student lounge area.
