    I am usually very critical of the design of buildings on the Fairfax campus, but this I like.

    We’ll see. I have watched the videos. Unconvinced. Might just be making one trade for another in orientation vs. sightline.

    That being said I really wish we had some more quad space. North plaza doesn’t count. Way too narrow. If we’re knocking down buildings I’d prefer to build them on surface parking. Build a deck to accommodate loss of space. But the campus core is too dense for my liking.

    Tag them from behind then bounce.

    This requires a prolonged shutdown if I remember correctly. Also interesting that they seem to be investing in the arena, between the roof and the locker room, while also drawing up (very preliminary) plans to move to a new arena on campus.

    Also looks like they want the work done while the building is occupied

    Curious what the benefit is now that we can support the scoreboard. Rigs for concerts? Or maybe it's just actually decaying. It'd be cool if we could get a bigger videoboard int he future.

    I think the new video board is perfect size — anything bigger would look odd

    Maybe. I think it has slight room to go bigger. I just want points and stats on the board.

    Have to believe the roof is one issue and the support structure is another. Why would they hang a board if the support is about to change.
