Even blue-grey paint would go a long, long way (though maintenance is a bi-atch)

And that hospital... man oh man..

It is what it is, but this photograph is kinder than the first. Best that can be said is that it works, and JMU made the best use of the Cancer Center.

The interior is spacious and very functional for Admissions and The Graduate School.

^ heard the same from my brother... at the pedestrian level, massive improvements in the area (90% of the time people don't look above the 10 foot mark)

Additionally, this space has given JMU lab space for an accelerator that can be used for low-level nuclear physics research, which is pretty cool.

I feel like they could just cover up the brick with blue stone it would make a world of difference.

Not sure it's possible to cover up the brick. The brick itself is likely already a veneer, and to add a bluestone veneer on top might cause issues down the line.

For instance, if there's issues with moisture down the line, they'd have to determine whether the issue is between the bluestone & brick, or brick & structural face. That's a bigger headache than it's worth.

Just guessing though...

That's a good point. I would have to think they considered trying to make it "blend in" better to the Quad architecture, especially with adding the covered walkway and bluestone elements to that.

It's an interior campus building. They did a decent job with the outward facing stuff like the health center and SSC.

(back to Madison Hall though) They put a lot of "curb appeal"/lipstick on that pig though with the bluestone towers and columns in front of the building.

it wouldn't be easy... but you leave airspace between the old and the new... and then allow for relief every 8 veritical feet, and include "weep holes" for moisture. The weight isn't carried by the brick but by proper ledges.

all that said - would be more expensive than putting bluestone on a NEW building....maybe we need to invent bluestone wallpaper? first up is burruss hall...
