Adrian Hall was built in 1957 by the labor of the Marist Brothers. In his concept for Adrian, Brother Nilus Vincent's design philosophy is evident. Its cantilevered structure melded peacefully into the landscape, as if it were in love with the ground. Brother Nilus designed Adrian so that it was aligned with nature through its sweeping horizontal lines. Adrian was not only an enclosure of space, but it was also a shelter for the spirit of man.
