Building Boom

May-June 2005

The University is on a building boom of sorts. The campus was transformed in the post-World War II era, extending itself outward and upward in the 1960s and 1970s. Now, science facilities and housing are on the rise, fueled by federal biomedical research and the 1990s University Campaign. An Allston campus would spur a new wave of physical growth.
