My dorm consists of a square-ish ring of dorms with a huge, gaping courtyard in the middle. I was walking through the courtyard the other day when it stuck me that the inside of the front of the building (the wall of the courtyard that you see when you face the main entrance)
is somewhat similar to Venturi's Guild House.
I can't decide if that amuses me or depresses me. Maybe they're not the same at all, and I'm just weird.
More importantly, Rem Koolhaas is going to be at Cornell next Tuesday. He's my absolute favorite, and I REALLY hope someone will go with me.
