A city unto itself complete with skyscrapers, plazas, streets and parks, the Southwest Residential Complex was designed by Hugh Stubbins & Associates between 1964 and 1966 and completed by the early 1970s. It is one of the most significant of the modernist projects which transformed the UMass Amherst campus in the late twentieth-century into the world-renowned research university it is today.
