Ford Hall (incorporated in the Whalen Center)
| Click on image titles for larger views. || |
Ford Hall is centrally located on the Ithaca College campus, which is appropriate, as the College's origin was as a music conservatory. The building is named for a former trustee of the College, Clinton Ford, who was an active supporter of the arts, particularly those connected to the School of Music. The School of Music has remained central to the mission of the College.
The building's style, Brutalism, is in keeping with that of other structures original to the South Hill campus, which are all modernist structures.
