Description of Cobb Hall
Cobb Hall at the University of Chicago was designed by architect Henry Ives Cobb, and is the oldest building on campus. Cobb modeled his designs after the Gothic style of architecture at Oxford in England. When I paint the buildings on the UChicago quads, I like to contrast the traditional Gothic buildings with the youth and vitality of the students. I contrast the old and the new, tradition and change, with the studentsâ€™ electronic devices as a symbol of change.
