"The Campus of the Future" - a Symposium on Modern Architecture

A SYMPOSIUM ON MODERN ARCHITECTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY

During the 1960s, modern architecture transformed the University of Kentucky. Skyrocketing enrollment led to construction of new dormitories, classroom buildings, and laboratories. All introduced radically new architecture to a traditionally styled campus. What ideals animated the built environment that took shape, and what are its major legacies? Join distinguished historians, archivists, and artists in exploring the transformation of the university campus half a century ago.
