Birch Hall was designed as the first of many new buildings in a campus "master plan" conceived by world renowned architect, Eero Saarinen, whose credits include the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO and the former TWA Terminal of Kennedy International Airport in NYC. Though the rest of his plan was not followed, Birch is an outstanding example of the modern Cubist style of post WWII architecture.
