Major growth patterns on Belknap Campus can be recognized
architectural styles from
the 20th century. These developments also coincide with
a physical expansion outward from our earliest buildings.
(1950s – early 1960s)
The second wave of significant growth on Belknap
Campus is evidenced by Schneider Hall (above,
left) and the Miller Information Technology Center
(above, right), both completed in the late 1950s.
These buildings feature clean lines and graphic
elements that were prevalent at the time.
BRUTALIST (late 1960s – 1970s)
When UofL entered the state system in 1970,
increased enrollment and the availability of
additional funds led to the expansion of Belknap
Campus yet again. The Bingham Humanities
Building (left), Strickler Hall and Davidson Hall are
all reflective of the Brutalist style of architecture,
which features blocks of heavy construction,
often employing an extensive use of concrete.
