    ^^From Paulsen's Twitter. I assume they're planning to add graphics/images to the walls at some point?

    I would assume that is a safe assumption.

    As long as it doesn't have negativity from GMU05, anything associated with Paul Hewitt or VCU, I'm good with whatever.

    I think GMU05 quotes would be excellent motivators. Every time one of our guys steps to the line in practice he'll remember "some random douche on the internet thinks I suck. I should probably make this shot".

    So there are updates about the Robinson Hall project. It looks like they're knocking down both Robinsons, building a new building on Robinson A, creating a new open courtyard and ampitheater on the site of Robinson B, and leaving Harris Theater as a standalone building. Completion is slated to be somewhere in 2022.

    See for yourself:

    Interesting Orientation of the building....also kind of a weird design. Much better than the current shithole though.

    "Natural lighting will be brought in from...windows on the buildings perimeter".

    George Mason, where innovation is tradition?

    In somewhat unrelated news, we really do have a nice court. The design is clean and classic, yet at the same time modern with the big logo. Good job to whoever designed it.

    Two toned wood looks cheap

    It's a nice building but it's going to look wildly out of place

    I actually disagree - if you look at the use of brick, color, windows and curves -- it borrows a lot from the new Library and HHS building. I think it will look great and it opens up that plaza and gives one hell of a long site line.

    The architecture is in line with everything else, no doubt. Mason's done well to have a uniform style. My qualm is with the orientation of it. Seems like it should be running the other way in the way the old Robinson does. I think they're doing it this way because they can shorten the time frame but I think it looks goofy as is. But hey, maybe when it'll look better in person.

    I think if you look at all the videos you will see how the new orientation opens up the plaza and the really long site line that will run from the Humanities buildings all the way to Southside. That was part of the original plan.

    This will totally change this side off the campus.
