9. Community College of Rhode Island - Knight Campus
Location: Warwick, R.I.
Year Built: 1972
Key Architects: Perkins + Will
The Knight Campus of CCRI was built for function but may have sacrificed style in the process. The campus is the perfect example of harsh, brutalist architecture. Cold, domineering, and intrusive, it doesn't give much by way of inspiration, and it's anything but inviting. The main building evokes images of a concrete cruise ship.
