Day 392

Meister Hall

January 25th, 2013

I once spotted this fortress-like structure from a couple of miles away; not realizing it lay within the bounds of Bronx Community College and never suspecting it could be an academic building, I assumed it was some kind of telecom facility. "The main facade is relatively conventional, if recognizably Breuer, but the southern side has eight windowless floors — seven in blinding white concrete — set on a featureless base. It’s neoclassical austerity on a modernist scale."
