The next picture is a picture of the fountain right outside the Dining Hall. It is known as a meeting place for many of the students of UNCG. Now, hopefully, everyone remembers my vocabulary from the last blog because I'll be using this a little in the next parts. The fountain is not gaudy or mind-blowing like the other fountains I have seen in the world. It is a nice fountain that sticks out. If you can see, the fountain has the arched-rectangular design like many of the windows on the old buildings. So, we could infer that this was a design built to keep history going in a deep way. Now, this fountain could be considered a beat. The fountain is a crossing point for many of the students. Also, this is a major beat because it is right in front of a major area, the Dining Hall.
The next picture is a picture of the once-only Science Building, the Petty Building. The Petty Building has multiple old-style attributes like the pitch roof and the Corinthian columns. Now, there's something new added in this building. There's the bridge. The bridge is a special thing to the Petty Building. It's a metal bridge with a glass interior to the bridge. Now, you can see from this that the times were changing when this design came in. Now, I believe this was a smart decision because of the big, gaping hill right in front of it. Why did UNCG construct a building near a hill that could hurt someone without that bridge? Well, I think they were trying to change the design of UNCG buildings by doing this and adding the necessity of a bridge. Now, the Petty Building could be considered a part of the Academic District in the districts of UNCG. This is because the building is an academic building and it is in a central area where academic buildings reside.
Finally, this is the Elliott University Center. This building needs no introduction due to its reputation. It is a center to the university. To state some attributes, this building looks almost like half of the Music Building. Maybe these two buildings were constructed at the same time period. It keeps some of the old historic approach with the brick and stone walls and the rectangular windows that could form a puzzle, as I like to call it. The Corinthian columns are also a great way of showing the historic past of our buildings. Now, this building could be as infamous as it is famous. See, while this is a center, i would also call this a fix. This has been labeled as the center of the university so everything had to have been built around it. Sadly, with this, it has left out many of the outer-laying buildings like the Human and Health Performance Building. Also, it has made the point of view of the university that only the buildings around the EUC are popular compared to the outer buildings.
Well, I hope you liked this special edition of my blog. Please give feedback as much as you can and I appreciate it!
