Remember the big six-level parking garage in Dewey Field?
Built in 1972 to hold 490 cars, the garage is visible in this 1995 photo behind Remsen/Vail. The college demolished it in 1996. A Bing aerial shows the current state of the site at the northwest corner of the Dewey Field parking lot, and a Google Street View shows the site from the ground (pan around to see the Google engineers giving the camera trike a sendoff).
It turns out that ADD, Inc., the firm that designed the interior renovations of Home 36 and Home 50, did more than create a new headquarters there for Dana Library. It also created offices there for DCHCDS; and it designed interiors at 4 Currier Place.
Some notes on education: A small article in Education Life in the Times covers an interesting project, the Minerva Schools. In this attempt to be a non-discount university at a discount price, the idea of renting space in a series of world cities is a neat one. (Also in the supplement is a wordy ad for MALS at Dartmouth (pdf) that seems undesigned — showing directness and honesty, one supposes.) A visit to a Virginia horse fair last weekend turned up booths representing the University of Findlay in Ohio and Centenary College in New Jersey. Interesting. Most of the other booths promoted saddles, animal feed, or pasture fencing.
