Rosenthal Building, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA

Formally known as the Gladys Hall Rosenthal Building, this was built on Spruce Street as an addition to the existing School of Veterinary Medicine in 1963-64 by the firm Monaghan and Forrest, a firm on which there seems to be very little information available. The building is very utilitarian with minimal ornamentation and no windows on the front facade but loft style windows instead on the secondary facades.

It seems to have been designed to occupy a completely subservient role to the existing 1912 Cope and Stewardson-designed veterinary complex behind it along 38th Street.
