Cornell Construction Photos, Spring 2013

I finally had the chance to swing through Ithaca for photo updates. Casual estimate here, I spent about 4.5 hours driving around getting photos, hitting about 90% of project sites, including all in Ithaca proper. The photos will go up over the next few days, split up because wordpress freaks out when a post has a large number of images.

I’m not quite sure how I feel about Gates Hall. The glass is high-quality, and much appreciated. However, looking at the south wall, I hope those are protective covers – to me, it just looks overly cluttered and unnecessarily “busy”. Completion of the 101,000 sq ft building is set for this December.
