Boos for the Big House

"I read the comic pages in the January 2009 edition titled 'Boos for the Big House, Praise for the Pringle,'" Robert Greenough wrote in response to this story. "Reading about architects chewing about the pros and cons of building appearance is as absurd to the general public as listening to wine aficionados discuss wine, or art critics discuss features of modern art. It is highly subjective."

Others joined the subjective debate. "I have heard over and over about people who do not like the design for the new 'Big House,'" emailed Lisa Reach. "While it is a drastic change it does maintain the brick arches that are present on many U of M buildings"-unlike the "garish and hideous new Ross Business School building," one of several campus buildings we omitted for reasons of space.
