I've always like this one but hadn't heard a peep about it in ages. I know it was originally taller but got chopped to its current height.

They already took a wallop at this thing a few years ago, hence the height reduction to what we have now. I think this is the compromise height.

I would have thought the idea ludicrous a few years ago but it's getting to the point where I think they should develop some system of mirrors to reflect sunshine down to this school. I'll never understand some people's obsession with direct sunlight. I've always preferred indirect sunlight as do half the people I know. Every time I'm at a park I notice the same thing: a lot of people choose to sit in the shade. I guess our preferences don't matter.
