April 19: The History and Cultures of the Southwest Residential Complex
Speaker: Timothy M. Rohan
Description: Completed in 1968, the towers of the Southwest Residential Complex have made a big impact on our local landscape. What is the history of this large complex, which can house up to 5500 students? What does it tell us about modern architecture, the campus, the community, and the region in the 1960s and after? How did its diverse communities create their own unique cultures within this “big city”-like environment?

Coronavirus Update: In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Campus Planning staff are working remotely and will continue to support our clients and deliver planning solutions for our community. If you need immediate assistance please call 413-345-3910.
