Butler’s architecture

In response to: New residential college rising

Re “New residential college rising” (Notebook, Sept. 24): Butler College† — what a dreadful-looking building!

Did the donor want his legacy to resemble a prison? Surely more than $50 million a year (Annual Giving, FY ’08) can create better-looking architecture.
