1962, Giffels and Rossetti; 1989 and 1996 additions, Albert Kahn Associates. Wilson and Red Cedar rds.

Colossal brick piers support the pedimented portico, and a large oculus in the pediment marks the front entrance of the three-story Postmodern addition of 1989 to the College of Engineering Building. This addition includes aluminum windows in strings, recessed within bays of orange-red brick. Orange-brown brick walls, punctuated with royal blue ceramic tile and trim, complete the colorful exterior. The addition links to the original building on the north and east to form a quadrangle.
