Back to School #5

This is the new wing of the Talley Student Center, the successor to the old student union a few posts back. The original part of this building is completely hidden or renovated.

 

I am not sure if I like it or not. Here is what the university says:

It has a very clinical feel but I do like the lines.
Larry Bliss: Clinical is a good word to describe it... now that I look at it again, it's growing on me...
it reminds of some of the buildings built in the sixties Larry...
there is not much character to it....petersmile
Larry Bliss: Perhaps the days of buildings with character are gone...

Much more practical, Larry
Larry Bliss: What I saw of the inside looked very interesting...
I actually like all the lines, Larry, and the color.
Larry Bliss: I will forward your comment to the architects... smile

I did not read the article. It looks fine to me. The main part is that the students teach something...maybe architecture and 'what NOT to do with renovations'....
Larry Bliss: We have a design school at State... I wonder what their students think...

Interesting to revisit. My son now studies at the last university I studied - and I get interesting feedback. Also how known courses have changed.
Larry Bliss: It is fun to go back to old places...
I quite like this. The parallel lines in the same colour as the center of the building bring the design together as a whole.
Larry Bliss: I see what you mean... I am still not sure about the orange part...
I wonder how it will look in ten years time?
Larry Bliss: Well, the bushes might be bushier...
