America's Ugliest College Campuses
University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, MA
Not only did architect Paul Rudolph cleverly disguise a concrete spaceship as a college library, the founders had the wherewithal to hide it in plain sight in Massachusetts. This much beloved and derided structure dating back to the early 1960s is an icon of Brutalist architecture—and got some welcome renovations in late 2012. Ivy Leaguers need not feel smug; Rudolph also constructed Yale’s hulking Art and Architecture Building.
