Brown University's Ugliest Buildings

My alma mater, Brown University, has a campus which has grown a fair amount over the years, and it has a variety of buildings in a variety of styles. The result could be described as a bit of a hodge-podge, but I kind of like the mixture, even though it means that not all of the buildings are very pleasant to look at.

Last weekend I decided to wander around campus and take pictures of the ugliest buildings, and the results can be found below. Historical facts about the buildings were generally taken from the Encyclopedia Brunoniana.

1964: The John D. Rockefeller, Jr. LibraryCollapse )
1965: Barus & HolleyCollapse )
1968: The Graduate CenterCollapse )
1971: The Sciences LibraryCollapse )
