Virginia Tech: Burruss Hall – Blacksburg VA


Burruss Hall serves as the main administration building for Virginia Polytechnic and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia. Originally called the Teaching and Administration Building, it was constructed with a grant from the WPA from 1934-1936. It contains a 3,003 seat auditorium that is still widely used. The ceiling and walls of the auditorium were decorated with geometric designs as part of the WPA project. In addition to the original WPA building, two wings and a rear addition have been added.
