And that's the nice side of the building.

About the new stuff, I think it's nice to de-modernize the one building, but I REALLY wish the new buildings that are being built were modern.

While the architecture on Central Campus is higher quality, at least North Campus is authentic. I don't think U of M needs any more neo-revival-revival-neo-post-revival architecture. And to be honest, I don't even think these new buildings even look that good. Some of the revival stuff from the 20s on campus doesn't even look good either. I don't want any goofy blobitecture or anything like that either, but just something that is well done and modern. The art and architecture building on north campus is bad (I complain about it in my head every few hours, and out loud every few days), but I'd honestly rather be there than in one of these buildings.
