UMass Amherst Campus

The UMass Amherst master plan, under the direction of Hideo Sasaki, brought in architects for major projects such as the Lincoln Campus Center designed by Marcel Breuer and the Fine Arts Center designed by Kevin Roche. UMass Amherst is also home to many concrete, post-war structures such as the McGuirk Stadium by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and mixed brick and concrete structures, such as the Dubois library designed by Edward Durrell Stone and the Southwest Residential Area designed by Hugh Stubbins.
