University of Minnesota, Minneapolis
A long unwieldy name for a striking modern building. It's next to Coffman Student Union right of Washington.
Before you start thinking cookies and biscuits -- think former governor of Minnesota.
Favorite thing: Here the students are buying posters for their dorm rooms with a modern sculpture and an older campus building in the background.
Favorite thing: There is plenty of sculpture on the university campus -- here is a contrast between what I call "metalman" in the engineering complex and the fish fountain behind Coffman Student Union.
The campus is a wonderful mix of old and new. The history of this building is worth reading!
This outstanding piece of architecture is both an alumni center and a gateway to the campus. It is on the site of the old stadium.
Favorite thing: The campus of the University of Minnesota covers a wide area, but has a lovely traditional central quadrangle. It is pretty even in the snow! The big building is Northrop Auditorium.
Favorite thing: The Computer & Electrical Engineering building at the university -- one of the many modern and well-equiped facilities at the university.
