At 4:07 in this video PME Dean Matthew Tirrell confirms the school plans to expand to "the north and the northwest", which means the adjacent buildings are toast and will be replaced, as expected.

Sigh..Blair Kamin. Sometimes his reviews are thoughtful, but for the most part, he's a parochial, bloviating jerk.

Seemed like he liked it while adding a preface that he hates egotistical design which was quite... egotistic

I think the Archpaper article is better just by virtue of the fact that they actually interview/talk with the architects, which is missing from Kamin's take. That type of one-on-one helps illuminate the logic behind a design, but a writer like Kamin isn't interested in that, because then he wouldn't be able to ramble on and on. Ego indeed, and one the reasons I find him to be repellent.

I prefer the former. The latter looks likes a Soviet prison.

Here are the projects that I am aware of in the planning phase in Hyde Park. Does anyone know of anything else major?

1) Harper Court Phase II
2) Parking garage / rec center by Woodlawn Commons / Keller Center
3) new building for Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering
4) Cancer Hospital
5) new dorm (there's said to be talk of one more dorm to help house all the undergrads)
