not joking. It's a pizza box that is a tumor on one of the oldest and nicest buildings on campus.
I love the interior of the building, but I really dislike the way it looks in relation to its location on campus.
-1 on the "brilliantly designed" apsect of Maison a Bordeaux. I know you'll give me flack for this, but to quote the GF on this building: "the general concept seems straightforward and nice. three separate "houses" for different aspects of living. each house is defined differently (like the article says-carved into the hill, open, enclosed) then the elevator platform is looked at as a room that moves between all of these. what would make or break this is how that movement is defined, and how each "house" is articulated". its a good prect conceptually, finished a little funny. its odd because its a simple, fun, good idea. but its made to take itself very seriously and finished with these funny details and shapes that over do it."
then again, she can be very harsh on R.K.
