The Whitmore Administration Building rises from an earthen berm to complete the west side of the Haigis Mall entrance to campus.  Standing on the site of the old football stadium, this hunkered-down concrete building is a monument to Hideo Sasaki, the landscape designer who profoundly restructured the UMass Amherst campus during the 1960s.  [[s:sasaki_master_plan|Sasaki's plan]] called for Whitmore to provide visual unity to the wide expanse of Haigis Mall.  Although the [[f:fine_arts_center|Fine Arts Center]] was essentially planned earlier, Whitmore is the first of the modern, exposed-cement buildings to be erected on campus.
