Andy's Angles: College Construction Weekend

If there's ever a project that inspires mixed feelings, this is it.

My alma mater, Marywood, is building a new library.  No one will argue that there's a need.  The current library is functional, but it's old and needs an update.  It needs to reflect new technology.  Below is Marywood's answer, The Learning Commons.
The library will be in the center of campus, as it should be.  A good library is the heart and soul of any college or university.

My concern is the look.  It's a modern glass and steel building in the middle of a cluster of brick.  It doesn't look like it fits.  We'll see if the finished project blends, or obtrusively sticks out.  Completion is set for fall of '15.
