This modern building, designed as part of the 1971 expansion of campus, provides a link between a garage at the south end and a dining hall at the north. Slope-topped light wells, and cantilevered stairs on the exterior recall the sculptural late work of LeCorbusier. The facade has been altered by a metal, bowed front that was added in 1987-8 by Research Planning Associates whose members included Maria Romanach, the daughter of the late Mario Romanach, designer of the building.
