Unfortunately, I don't think it is brick. From the picture I saw on the side of the fences, it looks like some glass building, like SAS hall. I hope this isn't something they're looking to do when renovating other buildings

Because that's the way it was in Latin, and North Campus is older and more classical.

Quote :
"Most buildings that encompass Roman-style architecture use the Latin alphabet, which only had 23 letters at one time, not including the letter U.

The "U" sound still existed, but it was represented with the letter V."

I'm gonna try finding some 3d shape software type thing, or maybe just sketch out what I think a cool IS building would've been
through a lens devoid of engineering of course lol

perhaps a pyramid! pyramid with a huge cylinder jutting out the middle?

Dang, it might be! Clark was built sometime around 2001, so he probably was still on campus around then.

Nighthawk, GrumpyGOP, OmarBadu.

I'm fairly certain that this is the ladder going down from the brickyard entrance to the tunnels:
I found another one like this but that was sealed in some way.



as to getting down there? a crowbar I guess. but doing it in the middle of attraction with cameras on construction doesn't seem like the smartest move lol
Any other references I've seen seem to be gone or shut off. But maybe some more attention is deserved...

Quote :
"NC State community,

You may have seen in the news over the weekend that the North Carolina General Assembly approved the state’s new spending plan last week, and Governor Cooper has indicated he will allow it to become law without his signature.

I am pleased to share that this budget recognizes NC State’s immense value to North Carolina with significant investments in our campus that will have transformative impacts on our students, faculty, staff, programs and facilities for decades to come.

We are tremendously grateful for the support of the legislature and their commitment to NC State’s mission and future success.

Importantly, this budget includes much-needed salary increases for our hardworking faculty and staff. Our employees will receive an across-the-board salary increase of 4% this year and a 3% increase next year, for a total of 7%.

The budget provides vital funding for NC State to expand educational and research opportunities by investing in the growth of existing programs and funding new initiatives, including:

$10 million in recurring funding for “Engineering North Carolina’s Future,” a legislative initiative supporting the expansion of the College of Engineering by 40% over the next several years.
$5.5 million in recurring funding to expand the College of Veterinary Medicine class size from 100 to 125 students in each cohort.
$6 million in ongoing support to establish an education and workforce pilot program within our College of Education for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
$4 million in nonrecurring funding to support agricultural education in middle and high school programs through the NC FFA.
$1 million in continuing funds to support the work of the statewide Small Business and Technology Development Center, the business extension arm of the UNC System, administratively housed here at NC State.
Recurring funding for NC State to partner with SAS on an agricultural research platform to enrich research initiatives and support future grant opportunities.
Funding to support various other initiatives, including the work of the NC Clean Energy Technology Center, research done by our Christmas Tree Genetics Program, and a green industry economic impact study to be performed by our College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
The North Carolina General Assembly also recognized the importance of providing students with a world-class learning environment. The budget reflects a substantial commitment to fund the construction of new learning spaces and the repair and renovation of specified existing buildings, including:

$200 million for a new Engineering Classroom Building to support the extensive growth in our College of Engineering.
$70 million for a Large Animal Hospital at the College of Veterinary Medicine, a $120 million total project where we will provide the other $50 million in funding as a match for the state’s investment.
$28 million for our Integrative Sciences Building, the last tranche of the state’s matching funding for this $180 million project.
$80 million for Dabney Hall phase 2 renovation; in the last budget, we received $60 million for the initial phase, a total of $140 million in renovations for the building.
$63 million for Polk Hall phase 2 renovation; in the last budget, we received $10 million for a total of $73 million in renovations.
$30 million for Mann Hall phase 2 renovation, previously having received $11.5 million for a total of $41.5 million in renovations.
$4.5 million in planning funds for a new Poole College of Management building.
$3 million to conduct a study to assess the feasibility of establishing an advanced nuclear research reactor at NC State.
$2.5 million in one-time funding for renovation of the Man-in-Simulant-Test lab located in the Textile Protection and Comfort Center in the Wilson College of Textiles.
You will hear more details in the months ahead as these investments, and others not listed here, begin making an impact on our campus.

The state’s extraordinary commitment to our university is a testament to our greatest asset — our people. The hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff, and the spirit, drive and creativity of our remarkable students make this university special.

Thank you for all you do for NC State.

Go Pack,

Randy Woodson
Chancellor"

...in some respects.

But everything else that got rammed through will be detrimental to North Carolina's primary and secondary education, as well as negatively impacting potential recruitment/future talent from a societal point of view.

I don't know how it works but imagine if the school's architecture department was expanded and given the responsibility of designing new university buildings, with students getting to work on it alongside

prolly not practical, but imagine how cool that'd be

if you shoot that from the other side, you can totally make DT dunk on the Talley Tower "basket"

I was trying to get a good pic of it... but the REAL DT was standing there doing a video interview and Tommy Burleson started yelling at me cause I was standing in his way (the irony is not lost on our height difference... he was sitting down) so I stopped trying to shoot it

I came across this picture of Hillsborough Street from 1983. Whenever I see something from the past, I go down this rabbit hole on the internet of how things are more safe and coddled now. of course... one still finds a way regardless, but still. Course, might just be rose tinted glasses, or rather... a rose tinted imagination. Apparently, a lot behind this are those "luxury" student and apartment complexes that opened up.

Might be reality, or might have a lot to do with the internet effect, but whenever I read about stuff online, the narrative seems to be that it's all getting more and more commercial and more "fake". Like, I read this article below (thanks, Technician), and saw this quote:
Quote :
"Murison said that this closing is the result of the continued efforts to give Hillsborough Street a facelift. “I think everybody agrees that, that block of Hillsborough Street is not the most attractive by any means,” Murison said."

https://www.technicianonline.com/news/pantana-bob-s-to-close-after-25-years-on-hillsborough/article_6883441e-42ad-11e3-8c63-001a4bcf6878.html
Of course, I don't know the specifics of this situation, but extrapolating from this, it just seems to be the same idea behind making everything car centric, building "fake luxury" cookie cutter housing with no real quality that looks good, and all these societal trends we see

I feel like I'm having some cognitive dissonance here. I might not be using the term exactly right, but you'll see what I mean.


source 1 - First freshman class at North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in 1889


source 2 - the 1925-26 basketball team

I'm a bit too lazy to go on right now. So I'm going to drop this message off here and resume later with a new message.
