mcnamara alumni center

from antoine predock, kke architects posted in art and design by crabapple

Located on the same campus as the Weisman Art Museum, the McNamara Alumni Center is another example of eye-catching modern architecture. Designed by the New Mexico-based architect Antoine Predock (and named after an alumnus who donated $3 million towards its construction), the rounded, angular McNamara is intended to resemble a giant, granite-sheathed geode. Irregular windows and large slits of glass penetrate the exterior of the Great Lump of Oak St.

Inside McNamara is Memorial Hall, an 85-foot high behemoth of a room, with a processional arch from the previous property's tenant (Memorial Stadium, 1924) displayed inside.
