This photograph shows Winn Residence Hall, which houses first year students. It was built in 1962 using the Youtz-Slick Lift-Slab method, which means the concrete slabs that form its balconies were first poured on the ground and then hoisted up into these positions. With its exposed concrete, red brick, and rectangular plan, the hall exemplifies the architecture of most of the first-year quad and recalls the forms of O’Neil Ford’s earliest Trinity residence halls, Murchison, North, and South. Besides a few landscaping alterations, there are few differences between Winn’s past and present appearances in this photograph.
