UTHSC SA DD hachar building

The D.D. Hachar Building was the first building constructed as part of the Laredo Campus Extension of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. It is intended to be a building for administrators and teachers that will be the anchor for the future campus in Laredo. It houses offices, a library, meeting rooms, classrooms, an auditorium, and support spaces. The building was designed by Guillermo (Willy) Cavazos with the intention of establishing a strong presence of the medical program in Laredo. The building is place at a 45 degree angle to the street, in such a way that one is gravitated towards it when driving by. The materials used, such as cantera stone and over-sized Mexican brick, are typical of the region and are used in a style reminiscent of Spanish colonial architecture.
