Long Description:

"It was designed by Cass Gilbert, who also designed Battle Hall, the architecture library on the same campus. Originally, Sutton Hall housed the College of Education."

University Website

"With respect to architectural character, Gilbert continued the freely interpreted Spanish Renaissance style that he had introduced with Battle Hall. Signature features include tile roofs; broad, bracketed eaves enlivened by color; and glazed terra cotta ornament. Whereas monumental Battle Hall has limestone walls, the more modest Sutton Hall has rich-appearing but less imposing (and less expensive) façades, limiting limestone to the first floor with brick and terra cotta above."

Artist: Cass Gilbert, Architect
