    easy. decent facade photos though. you should get columbia to make these part of its shitty virtual tour:

  2. McKim

    wow, i didn't realize how monotonous my designs were.

  3. Mead

    Maybe if we'd spent last time Brokback Mountaining it around, we couldn't done a better job.

  4. White

    Yeah, but then we wouldn't have been inspired to put up the phallic fountains on Low plaza.

  5. Josh Hirschland

    Wow, that's amazing. Thanks Mark.

  6. drunk and confused.

    am i just retarded or do they all look the same?

  7. distracted

    this is harder than the econ midterm i'm studying for.

  8. Anonymous

    A and K look identical.

  9. Except...

    A's got the attic classroom that the Creative Writing kids occasionally get holed up in. And that's JUST fine.

  10. wow  

    that was harder than i thought. i knew them all but, i didn't ever realize how architecturally identical the buildings are. to me they always seemed to have more character.
