A Facade Gone Wrong
Once I saw the actual results (pictured above) I kept asking myself "What were they thinking? The original building from 1964 is seen here.
Even more disturbing, this remodel was done by Howorth & Associates, who have earned kudos in my book for restoring buildings to their original intentions. This is also billed as the "first of a multi-phase remodeling." Perhaps Malvaney is correct in the assessment of the future of the campus.
What I do note every evening as I drive past this building on the way home is my feelings about how a once really unique building on the campus now just looks like a copy of all the other buildings with no personality of its own. I miss the other building.
