The five buildings designed by Josep Lluis Sert include the Central Boiler Plant, Law Tower, Pappas Law Library, Mugar Library, and the George Sherman Student Union and "Link"-- a one-story interior connector between the Mugar Library and the GSU-- all built in the early 1960s.

Law Tower Renovation

towerAfter undergoing a complete renovation during the 2014-15 academic year, the 17-story law tower is now open.

The design faithfully rehabilitates most of Sert's original tower while taking deliberate measures within the original architect's design vocabulary to make the existing buildings more acceptable to the 21st century needs of its inhabitants.

All windows have been replaced with thermally insulated units reflecting the pattern and profile of the original building.

The exterior concrete panels that define the building's architectural aesthetic have been totally refurbished.

The tower has been revamped with new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, larger bathrooms, and modern facilities to house the school's administrative departments, faculty offices, moot courtrooms, and law journals.
