After class Thursday I walked around the fine arts building's second floor and sketched a map of the floorplan. What were those architects thinking? In the past four years I've had six different classes on that floor, and I still managed to find a corner I didn't know existed. All in all, the floor seemed a bit abandoned, and I really feel sorry for all the profs who have those cell-sized offices. The room numbering system makes no sense. In the what I recently learned to be MFA section of rooms, I found room numbers 295a, 295b, 295c, 295d and 295f. I spent about five minutes looking for 295E in all the logical spots and even some illogical. Someone let me know if it's found.
I'd really like to see some color in the halls and hanging signs labeled "Offices," "Art History," "Drawing," "University Publications" and "MFA Program." But instead on writing ON these single-colored, metal signs, the type would be cut out (Is the word "laser cut"?) and below a dominant symbol for the area. Ex.: a graduation cap for MFA and pencil for Drawing.
