Wright Hall is a two-story academic building on the Smith campus. It was built in 1961 by architects William and Geoffrey Platt, whose father Charles Platt was a well-known country house architect. Geoffrey Platt was also the first chair of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. In addition to Smith they also designed buildings for Harvard and Princeton. Wright Hall attempts to fit within the historic campus maintaining a low-rise profile and using traditional materials such as brick and a stone veneer, although the decorative concrete screen around the mechanicals on the roof is a more pronounced mid-century element. The arched window bays give it a slightly ecclesiastical feel such as one might find on a mid-century religious school campus. The two wings of the front facade are also differentiated by materials with one using brick and the other enamel panels between in the window bays.
