I have grown to like the campus. It's definitely not what I would have thought up, but I stopped hating it a while back and now I'm starting to like it. Huge waste of money, but then again, lots of things are.

Remind me again just what is the purpose of this campus. Is it administrative or teaching; and does anyone know what percentage is allocated to teaching?

Keep Fort Worth folksy

John, I have to admit that your photos are changing my opinion of the German bunker college - you've presented it very well - I'd even venture to say that you've made it look great!

Thanks, Ron. Once you are in the plaza, the complex actually photographs quite well. Others in the city have really made the place look very inviting by their photography.

I've never had a bad thing to say about this place. Nothing wrong with a little architectural diversity in this town.

But I guess I could understand why some wouldn't like it.

Actually, it's not that diverse compared to the towers south of the campus.  I might even say the new campus complements the architecture of the towers and vice-versa.

You're talkin' about the twin towers? 

Nah. 

 

One is a very modern, Vancouver-ish 21st Century style while the other is 2 very 80's skyscrapers that are funky enough to be different and likable, but still  too boxy to be anything special. You know?

IMHO: It's an ugly set of buildings and shames the gorgeous location..  ...

See I love it. I don't care for the sunken plaza on the city block but they way it looks on the bluff to to cool. 

In my opinion.

I get the feeling that someday, a movie will be shot here, and this will be in at least one of the scenes...

Walking along Belknap past the TCC Trinity River Campus on this sunny spring morning, I was reminded once again what a beautiful downtown campus for a community college!   Critics may disagree but I believe TCC made a wise decision to take over after RadioShack left.  And, though TCC got a lot of flack for building that unusual looking campus for nurse trainees farther to the east, the more I observe it the more I conclude it's not that bad a fit in that location.

Well considering I'm reading this sitting on the 4th floor watching some sort of ceremony going on at the Ripley Arnold site and watching people riding horses on thr levee, I'd tend to agree!

It's an incredible campus.

It's been reported that Bing Thom has passed away. He was the architect of the Nursing campus.
