Troy's campus is almost exclusively neoclassical architecture. I couldn't imagine the endzone facility not having that style architecture... it would certainly not fit the campus.

Technically, that's Federal architecture, which is a subset of neoclassical that we had in America during that time period. How's that for a Georgia education, huh? 03-wink

Been to Troy twice and I really like the way your campus looks. I sure wish previous App administrations had used more stone like old Chapel Wilson Hall.

Yeah, I wasn't aware that the rest of your campus looked like that when I made my original post.

I do like the stone but don't think that it translates well to the more progressive look that some of our bigger projects have taken on recently. The brick and dark green scheme seen on a lot of buildings gives us great flexibility going forward as well as an opportunity to look to the past.

The Student Union is a great example. The stonework around the base of the building calls back to Chapel Wilson and the stone walls in the mall while the brick and metal columns allow for large areas of negative space which light the Solarium.

An extension onto the union, like the one we have below, wouldn't have been possible if we had stuck with the all stone look across campus.

I'm very aware of the campus design theme. Former Director of Design and Construction Clyde Robbins and I had many disagreements over those blasted green roofs on campus. I've been in the coatings industry for 30+ years and warned him about using green on them. State projects always go to lowest bidder and one company's green does not match the other. Then you have the added issue with one of the primary pigments used in creating green, yellow. No other color is more affected by ultraviolet rays. Drive down Rivers Street and you'll see at LEAST 5 different shades of green roofs. At least my buddy Ken Peacock agreed we needed to get rid of the silver and green signs on campus and replace street signs with ones that incorporated the Block A. If you think rock won't work in a design take a trip up to Blacksburg, VA. The old campus is incredible. They even have their own private quarry for Hokie Stone.

Gotchya, at least it matches. I'd be pretty pissed if App built a state of the art field house that looked like someone added a new wing onto Monticello.

While it may not look like a new wing at Monticello the new renderings of our endzone building looks nothng like the rest of campus, or existing KBS. Then again because of the ineptitude of previous administrations hardly anything in KBS matches. The west and east stands are completely different. The wing on Owens Field House doesn't remotely look like the original building. The restrooms on the bank, gates and ticket building (brick with Black metal roof) don't match anything else. The early renderings of the new endzone facility don't look like any of that. It's hard to believe such a magnificent setting could have been butchered more badly. I begged Ken Peacock to drop the west stands when the old pressbox was coming down and build both sides to match. Now that we are finally getting rid of the track it would have been simple to wrap both endzones with the same look. KBS could be one of the best football venues in America. All we need to do is match the quality of the facility with that of the setting.

How many FBS stadium have a track around them still?
