Construction apparently is imminent. And judging from the renderings, the architect got his inspiration after being hit with an ugly stick.



Apparently, steeples are passe now.

I liked the original rendering better but I don't hate this. Would like to see other angles to get a better perspective.

All those college campuses nationwide (thankfully not BU) that are polluted with modernist formed concrete buildings from the early 1970s May beg to differ.

So our leadership seems determined to turn our beautiful campus into another copy of generic ugly state school u with modernist looking junk?

Take down historic statues and build ugly stuff...our leaders really have gotten into the progressive spirit.

Well..If the Brazos ever gets 10 feet over flood stage, we'll have a nice diving board for student/visitor recreation.

When I first saw the photo my immediate thought was that of certain traditional Catholic nun headresses (veils).

I'm thinkin' "Sound of Music" type attire.

It's hard to see what the designer is going for there. Hopefully the execution is better than the render. The budget should certainly afford a great product.

I see no indication of where the new IHOP will be located.

As Brian said, who pays for a building gets to choose what it looks like.

But I wish all such donors would leave modernist architecture in the past...the unsustainable throw away culture of modernity.

It looks like a 1980s business building with a parking garage as the front door.

I don't know. The more I look at it, the more it reminds me of Donald Trump's haircut.

Shouldn't they at least present the donor with some choices that match the campus?

And it still looks out of place on campus decades later.

The modernist library is another eye sore.

Still so freaking ugly 50+ years later.
