U MASS Dartmouth

The annual Flattest Century in the East was today. The bike ride starts at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and has distances of 30,54,62 and 100 miles. It is a very well organized ride with around 2,000 riders. I only rode the 30 miles this year due to knee issues. The architecture at the campus is classified as brutalism. The buildings and master plan were created by Paul Rudolph, who was sometimes referred to as the worst architect in America. The buildings are all formed concrete with no warmth or human scale. Faber Castell Pitt Art pens in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.

    Brutism – I just learned a new architectural term. It does resemble the blocks from childhood, though your drawing is attractive.
