The UMass Amherst campus has a mix of architectural styles.
Well into the 20th century, the campus did not look so different from other New England colleges.
After World War II, the institution took on bigger ambitions and ushered in modernist icons over the 1960s and early 1970s.
Buildings like the Lincoln Campus Center, however, came to be seen by many as hulking monuments to excess and corruption.
Today, under the watchful eye of Preserve UMass, a new appreciation of the campus’s unique architecture is growing.
