Olin Libe Renovations

26 06 2008

Is there any hope for a new facade?


Dear B-,

While the primary focus will be the interior of the building, the
renovation will affect the exterior. The limestone will be removed and
cleaned. Also, the windows will be replaced.

Thanks for writing!

Nope. I was hoping to see its dated, punch card appearance changed too. What makes the building even more of a travesty is that Boardman Hall, the building that was originally on the property, was actually nice looking. Built in 1892 and designed by the same architect as Uris Libe (W.H. Miller), it was the original home of the law school. It was torn down in 1959 [1].
