Most buildings on campus are ugly and massive concrete structures built during the last 30 years using a proprietary system for concrete structure construction designed to make constructions cheap and fast. The design is by the same group of architects (which work for the University city hall). The buildings have some kind of cheap modernistic style, but without any character or charm, and most of them are in desperate need of repairs. The streets inside the campus (Pampulha) are all cobblestone and they have been slowly substituted for pavement. The University City Hall which is one of the only exceptions for the architectural boredom of the campus was designed by Eduardo Mendes Guimarães Júnior and inaugurated in 1962. It has been recently protected by a municipal law (which protected various buildings in Pampulha district). Inside the building there is a gigantic panel by the famous local artist Yara Tupinamba. Yara also built a second massive panel (made of concrete) on the FUNDEP building.
