Hancher Auditorium

-A A +A
1972, Charles Herbert and Associates. N. Riverside Dr., south of Park Rd.

Located on reclaimed river land, Hancher Auditorium is the center of the Fine Arts campus. In addition to the auditorium, two other components of the complex are Clapp Recital Hall and the Music Building. The overscaled design in concrete with a cantilevered glass prow sums up what was conceived of as Modern at the end of the 1960s, and on into the early 1970s.
