“The road to success is always under construction.” -Lily Tomlin
I know some students, professors and guests are annoyed by the continuous construction on Cornell’s campus (it even receives an ice cream shout out at the Dairy Bar – Construction Cookie Crunch). Yet, despite the inconvenient mud and noise caused by development, I think we need to keep in mind the possibilities these new and revived spaces provide for each of us and future Cornell students.
For example, click on the above picture to check out a cool slide show of Paul Milstein Hall, the new building for the College of Architecture, Art and Planning. Although the plans are controversial (few aren’t, it seems) Milstein Hall is also going for LEED certification, which my design friends tell me is a quite a big – and sustainable – deal. Breaking ground next year, maybe it will be done by my five . . . err . . . ten year reunion?
