that's so great.. didn't know he'd done colleges

winterise - never expected to see my exam hall appear on tFS

here's some more from Trinity College, Dublin. The best thing is that since it's 500 years old, the city as it currently stands was built around it.. so while it's secluded and quiet within, all the shopping streets and life is directly outside the door.

yeah I think the State Center is really interestingly designed on the interior as well. It has a lot of impromptu gathering space with chalkboards etc. so groups can just go out and get together and do work. They also have a lot of wall space because they know that when people are working on laptops they prefer to have their back to the wall. Things like that.

Ah Trinity College. So so beautiful

the stata center unfortunately is not nearly that good-looking in real life. it's kind of considered an eyesore to be honest.

Well the first image is almost cartoon like so I agree that's probably not an accurate representation of it, but I still enjoy the aesthetic and more importantly the integration of function in it's shape.

Sweet Briar College in Virginia, rated America's Most Beautiful Campus by the Princeton Review!! The architect was Ralph Adams Cram, who also designed Princeton, MIT, Wellesley, and West Point.

I have to say the two most beautiful college campus belong to Oxford and Cambridge, hands down.

That building is amazing!


Here's the university at which I spent 1.5 mediocre years.. Loyola University New Orleans. It was pretty small compared to Tulane (which was next door) but I suppose cozy in its own way.. though just not the school for me ultimately!

^I have friends at Loyola New Orleans!

One of my favorite college campus is the Frederick Law Olmstead designed University of Chicago. Here are some shots taken by me last autumn:

^They are my own.

It's funny that I didn't realize that this thread started talking about the Uni of Chicago. It is truly gorgeous. Too bad the location is less than ideal... some of the most crime-laden neighborhoods here are blocks away!
