  • i like it says:

    @i like it reviewer calls the NW science building “a refined and exquisitely rational research center that nevertheless manages to look tough and intrusive”. i basically agree, but i have no problem with those adjectives and i think it looks great. moreover, i don’t think the author had a very good understanding of exactly how it will impact people-flow and interact with its surroundings.
    most importantly, of course, it will attract researchers and create more space for vital scientific work

    @... “The outside resembles a cooling unit, another depressing entry in Columbia’s unproud tradition.”

    what did i say? large hvac unit. that’s right. and i don’t care if the triangular whathaveyous mirror the invisible triangular truss system that makes up the foundation on dodge hall. the foundation is invisible.

    although duder wasn’t so critical towards the diana, he even said nice things about the color. probably because he’s a hipster and thinks 70s washer/dryer sets are vintage and cool.

    @Architecture Someone needs to post that article on PrezBo’s door, Martin Luther style.

  • I can't believe says:

    @I can't believe Barnard always brings Columbia down with such a bad name/image…it’s bad enough they’re top 30, but the fact they have to create negative press is just too much

    1. I'm sorry says:

      @I'm sorry was it just me or didn’t the article give a more favorable review of the Diana Center than of the new science building?

      1. yeah, the Diana's review was more positive says:
