On Friday, April 12, Professor Tim Rohan will lead a tour of the UMass Amherst campus to explore its Brutalist architectural heritage. To learn more about similar programs planned for HFA Days, please visit the HFA Days: Special Programs webpage.

About this tour:

After World War II, the University of Massachusetts Amherst embarked upon an ambitious building program to demonstrate that it had become a great research university. UMass employed talented architects of the time, such as the internationally known Marcel Breuer, and gifted but less remembered ones such as the Coletti Brothers of Boston. An expert on postwar modern architecture, Tim Rohan from Art History will lead the tour and his students will speak about the remarkable windows of the buildings, the subject of a classroom assignment and forthcoming fall 2024 exhibition entitled “Windows on UMass” sponsored by UMass Brut.
