I remember hearing that the new building could be the inspiration of a new logo like so many other schools have. I hope ODU doesnt drop the ball on one of the most important buildings on campus

RE: ODU Master Plan
Its a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a grand statement. Look at what CNU has done with its buildings, see what Regent has done. We have a different style of architecture, but the chance to seriously make an impression with the new building can't be understated. If it takes an extra year or two to get it right, do it. But it needs to happen as soon as possible, not 10 years down the road.

To be honest I would take a awesome new football stadium over a new webb center. But i agree its needed and they should not screw this up

That was mentioned by myself and a number of other students during the multiple Q&A sessions they had.

UNC and UVA were the two examples I pointed to.

Thats a major disappointment. I thought the new Webb Center was already approved, budgeted for and in the works. Webb's interior looks awful now, and I just assumed it was for the same reason the football stadium does. Not reinvesting in something being torn down. Figured the new Webb and the stadium would be going up about the same time. :(

https://www.odu.edu/content/dam/odu/offi...r-plan.pdf Slide 47 is a list of the conditions and map of what buildings are to be torn down.


Man I hope that isn't the case. I'm not too sure about the quality of the structure. You can see cracks in the floor on the north side of the building (Starbucks side) and on that end both the 1st and 2nd floors vibrate.

Wow. That rendering was ugly. The Ted came out so much nicer than the early drawings. Maybe the same will be the case with the football stadium.

RE: ODU Master Plan
Although it appears that a full replacement of Webb Center may be a long ways off, I believe the bones of the structure are such that a substantial interior and exterior renovation (most likely in phases) could be sufficient and allow for an architectural statement.

Other than budget/funding, the main reason cited to me for not replacing Webb Center was the logistical nightmare of taking Webb Center offline for a completely new building - other proposed campus construction exasperates both of these issues.

Not sure why they are starting to put new stuff in the new education building as it's the perfect temporary home for the webb stuff.
