I live in Berkeley, about 2 blocks from the University of California, and in my walks up around the (mostly) pretty campus, one of the ironies that usually strikes me is that the School of Architecture is housed in one of the ugliest buildings on campus - a building built in about 1964 or so in the aptly-named "Brutalist" school of modernist architecture. It is an enormous, hulking box of reinforced concrete, gray and foreboding, looking like something used by the Dark Lords of the Sith.
