UNI Married Student Housing

-A A +A
Engelbrecht/Rice. Located below 3600 block of College St.

With the exception of the housing, most of these buildings of the late sixties and seventies read as aggressively and self-consciously modern in a popular sense. The exception is the Maucker Student Union (1969), a structure essentially sunk into a gentle slope of the hill. Its small-scale forms work well with the older buildings, but its design and siting cry out for the hands of a landscape architect. The Married Student Housing translates a similar grid of angular volumes into wood.
