Narrative from the Virginia Landmarks Register

"Erected in 1970 and housing of part of the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture, Campbell Hall illustrates Modern Movement design principles tempered by a regional interpretation, respectful of the campus’s outstanding historic architecture designed by Thomas Jefferson. Prominent architects Pietro Belluschi and Kenneth DeMay designed Campbell. Belluschi’s works include the Pan Am Building (1963, now Met Life), an iconic building on Park Avenue in New York City; DeMay, of the firm Sasaki, Dawson and DeMay, was known for his campus planning and golf-related projects. The largely rectilinear L-shaped building, constructed primarily of concrete, glass, and UVa’s trademark red brick, opened the same year the university fully went coeducational. In 2008, the university built additions on Campbell that vary aesthetically from Belluschi’s blend of Jeffersonian and Modern styles. Nonetheless, just as Belluschi and DeMay took cues from the university’s design legacy yet built in a contemporary style, architects W.G. Clark and William Sherman did so as well with their 2008 additions."
