More Information

Originally used for the study of Commerce and Psychology, this structure now houses the study of Geography, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and Sociology. This is one contemporary design that aimed to reference the early campus buildings in both scale, style and selection of materials. The rough-hewn Tyndall stone, exposed concrete and polished limestone dressing, complement the Tier building (1932), connected to the west.
