KSA: In a Chi-Town State of Mind?

Intrepid Bwog contributor, frequent Bwog commenter, and skyscraper enthusiast Alex Weinberg sends us a tip about some questionable iconogrpahy: “KSA is advertising some sort of culture show on a thousand balloons and fliers and posters all over the campus. Non engineers/architects may not appreciate this, but they completely fucked up and branded their show with […]

Friday Goings-On:

While Bwog enjoyed the sunny weather on such a splendid day, several things also caught our attention: Bacchanal festivities coincided with today’s, er, other special celebrations, including Battle of the Bands, a much-too-limited barbecue, a moonwalk, and a sorority-sponsored “munchies” sale. Columbia’s beloved mascot was also spotted roaming about (pictured to the right), giving hugs […]

The Mother Ship Has Landed

It won’t be completed during the studies of any current Columbia undergrad, but the lucky prefrosh admitted to the Class of 2011 will, at least, be able to feast their eyes on this sight by their senior year. Behold, the José Rafael Moneo-designed Northwest Science Building, to be constructed over the erstwhile tennis courts between Havemeyer […]

Architects Append Awkward Addition to Avery

Bwog could not help but notice architecture students toiling in the spartan studios of Buell Hall in the early morning hours last week on something very much like this vaguely geodesic sculpture, which has now managed to find its way to the puny lawn in front of Avery. Is it someone’s desperate attempt to stand […]

Campus Corners: EC Courtyard

In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. I love inhospitable environments. When placed in settings that are unfriendly, unattractive, or simply odd, I find that I enjoy myself a little more than I do in a place that is comfortable […]

Maybe this will make them happy

‘subtly layered urban experience’ ‘the weight of history and the lightness of clouds’ ‘the work of a master who has reached full maturity.’ Esoteric new form of free verse? No–just selections from today’s New York Times review of the latest creation of Renzo Piano, the Italian architect whom Columbia has retained to design its space-agey […]

Bwog Quiz: Know your Facades!

It’s hard enough to be an undergraduate, but how can you possibly go to class if all the buildings look the same? To let you know where you stand, Bwog presents a quiz that challenges your Columbia knowledge. Is it Havemeyer? Is it Hamilton? No, probably not. Building names have been blurred to protect the […]

Campus Corners: EC Hotel

In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places where you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. On Friday nights, the entrance to East Campus is a stampede of excited drunkards and impatient Barnard girls, all waiting to enter a monolithic structure that is an almost mythical haven for […]

From the Archives–Casa Totalitariana

While prettying herself up for her launch party this evening (AT MONA on Amsterdam b/t 108 & 109), the Bwog has been pondering her place in history, especially as it related to the rise and fall of Fascism, which, it turns out, Columbia is not so far removed from. Casa Totalitarina By Jacob Jacobsonian One […]

Campus Corners – The Greatest Lecture Hall EVER

In which Bwog staffer Mark Krotov familiarizes us with the places where you can find him when he’s supposed to be in class. When I took chemistry in high school, I sat in front of a sink that I regularly turned on and off to prevent myself from falling asleep. When Columbia students take chemistry, […]
