J.M. Moudy Visual Arts Building

2805 S. University Dr. - 1980

Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo and Associates from Hamden, Connecticut designed this visual arts building complex for Texas Christian University.  Although it reads from University Drive as one building, it is actually two buildings that are connected by glass covered walkways.  In some ways, it was a departure from most of the buildings on campus in that other than the glass enclosed areas, the primary building material is concrete.  The yellow brick is only used as an accent along the north and south walls.  The west facade of the building is entirely of glass and concrete.  The university has allowed ivy to climb the concrete walls; thereby, softening the view of the building along University Drive.
