The University of Technology, Sydney is an interesting mix of architectural styles reflecting the different periods in which the buildings and grounds were constructed and renovated. The famous 'Tower' building is an example of brutalist architecture with square and block concrete designs. Built following massive student protests in U.S. colleges like Berkeley and Kent State University, the building was designed to do away with large, outdoor areas and hence limit students' ability to stage large protests. The Haymarket campus (building 5) combines a modern interior with the remaining exterior of the old markets building, and the recently completed buildings 4 and 6 are designed with an element of high-tech architecture. Further information: UTS Tower In October 2006, the university's tower building was voted by 23% of the total vote in a poll hosted by Sydney Morning Herald as ugliest building in Sydney.
