This book celebrates Merrifield Hall on the campus of the University of North Dakota. This century-old building is now enduring a radical renovation designed to keep it relevant for the next generation of students on the UND campus.
The editors’ goal with this book was both to respect Merrifield Hall’s past and look forward to its now in-process future. It is our hope that this book will offer a space of thoughts, memories, fragments, criticisms, and jokes for all those who have walked the halls of this building and for all those who may one day dance—intellectually and materially—its halls, in whatever future form(s) those halls take.
Interviews, historical essays, archival illustrations, poetry, creative essays, and photographs from students, faculty, and other denizens of Merrifield Hall enliven this intellectually and visually stunning celebration of one of the great buildings on the University of North Dakota campus. Campus Building stands somewhere between a raucous tribute concert and a love letter to the role that buildings play in our experience of a place, an institution, and a campus.
