Enigma in Monochrome

When I take the bus home from work, I sometimes take a route that passes this sign on a small outbuilding:

U Thant

Why “UN 1971”? Why Helvetica? (The University uses a different font for most of its signage.) I can only presume it’s a coded tribute to U Thant, UN Secretary-General in 1971.
