Hi Hofguy,

Glad to hear that you like it... I think it is a very nice hidden spot to see in this city. As you said the stairs are timeless... If you google "universidad central de venezuela pasillos", you will find more incredible pictures. Mostly of them are in the Library and the Aula Magna an amphitheatre of this university and considered to have one of the best acoustics in the world.

I just wanted to make a post regarding campus signs and entrance gates. Here are a couple of my favorite, and some that I'm not so keen on. The names speak for themselves..

New College in Oxford

In Oxford there are loads of colleges, all of them are impressive. This is not one of the most famous, but I really love it. You might recognize the cloisters in a very famous movie??

Architect and designer, Maya Lin, will be redesigning the Neilson Library at Smith College. The project is expected to cost roughly $100 million. Administrators at Smith feel that the library cuts off the campus. But regardless, that is quite the budget.

Maya Lin is credited for a number of projects, but in particular, the Vietnam Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

Library renovation in Croydon College

Talking about library renovations, I just remembered this project near London. The library and main hall of this college were renovated by adding a new contemporary building with a Curved Structural Glass Façade

This is how it used to look before:

This is during the construction:

Building finished:

so what do you think ? do you prefer before or after?

I personally don't dislike the old building, but when you see the surroundings, the new building has help to improve the view of the area..

That glass facade gives the interior some height. The material used kind of reminds me of the new Fulton Transit Center in Lower Manhattan. I think I would like something warmer looking maybe.

Yes I think you are right, there's something about this building that doesn't match with its purpose... the build looks its best when is illuminated, the rest of the day just looks as a common office building

Beinecke Rare Books Library at Yale

Basically the library holds rare collections with a capacity of around 800,000 volumes. The stone is marble, which is cut very thin for light to seep through

I'm going to guess Croydon. The library reminds me of BBC's old Television Centre.

Indiana University's new International Studies building. It has a really weird shape and looks different from every angle so the first image is a rendering to orient you.

The straight part of the other side of the structure.

there is a mixer of styles going on at University of Indiana, but what is great is that the material of the stonework and the light posts are consistent and unify the campus
