Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery by Tim Ford

Title

Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery by Tim Ford

Description

The third and final phase was the construction of the Library Tower, completed in 1995. The tower serves as an emblem of the university, completing the vision of the campus master plan from 1965 that stated that the building will be viewed on axis from the main approach drive, appearing unquestionably as the major building on campus." Since the Library was designed to grow with the university, the tower also symbolized how far UMBC had come in 30 years. The opening of the tower was celebrated with UMBC's first MindFest, A Celebration of the Power of Ideas and Information," on November 11. Activities included family brunch, seminars, tours, an alumni bonfire, and a photography presentation in the newly renovated Library Gallery.
