Travelstead Hall

College of Education, UNM Main Campus


Flatow, Moore, Bryan & Fairburn

Part of the controversial College of Education design for the University of New Mexico, Travelstead Hall is today considered a turning point in the school's design. The building's architecture reinterpreted the Pueblo Revival style prevalent on the campus through the principles of modernism. Glass and concrete are the predominant materials; the focal point is a stained glass wall created by artist John Tatschl. It is a fascinating and historic example of regional modernism.

The interior concrete bridge pictured is no longer open to the public.
