An open letter was recently submitted to the Board of Visitors, University Administration, and University Community undersigned by a number of architecture faculty at the University of Virginia. I won't paraphrase their comments or provide individual opinion but will suggest that everyone read the letter. This discussion has exposed the school of architecture to new audiences and engaged the community (micro and macro) in a lively debate.
(and its making me think that maybe I shouldn't have laser cut those ionic columns and palladian facade for my studio project...I should have cut them out with a blade just like T.J. would have)
seriously folks, has anyone seen the columns and pergola on the new basketball stadium at UVA?
