Major growth patterns on Belknap Campus can be recognized architectural styles from the 20th century. These developments also coincide with by distinctive a physical expansion outward from our earliest buildings. MID-CENTURY MODERN (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.
