Lets rate college architecture from a scale of 1-10 (ten being the highest).

Lets start with the new MIT Stata Center:

Looks like a pile of aluminum garbage. No offense......that's just my opinion.

I give it a 1.

why don't you just cut to the chase and post the picture of whichever Northeastern building that you want people to "ooooh" and "ahhhh" over.

The funny thing is that the building posted by Mini is what NEU used to look like about thirty years ago--Lol. This is what it looks like now:

Wow! It looks really interesting. I give it an 8.

By Palomino (Palomino) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 03:12 pm: Edit

The RPI building looks like a giant jet engine.

By Alan5 (Alan5) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 03:43 pm: Edit

Middlebury's new library looks like a large hydrofoil or a spaceship. I give it a 7.5.

Here is the next entry from Amherst College:

Funny -- almost a twin of "Earlham architecture", where all the buildings look like that.

By Arthurd (Arthurd) on Monday, August 16, 2004 - 04:49 pm: Edit

I'd give the Northeastern Bldg H an 8.5 -- looks really nice.

Amherst & Earlham: 7

Man, why are MIT's buildings so ugly? I thought they would have some of the best architecture seeing as how MIT is uber-prestigious. I guess MIT is just a place that sounds better than it looks.

Duke looks like an ivy-league/England wannabe. Where are the basketball courts?

By Alan5 (Alan5) on Tuesday, August 17, 2004 - 07:03 am: Edit

The next entry is from Emerson College:

How exactly do you look like an ivy-league wannabe? Have gothic buildings? Plenty of universities have those..and the basketball courts are in a seperate area with the rest of the athletic fields and stuff.
