New, 30 comments

A tipster sent in this image taken yesterday from the 5th floor of the TechOne building. Needless to say, WSU is wasting no time taking out the American Beauty building so that scientists can use it as a parking lot. Anyone remember that colorful mural that used to be on the walls. You know, when it had walls? And so another Albert Kahn-designed building is dunzo. Well we're done saying "How Kahn they?" Anyone taking bets on what day this thing will be entirely out of bricks and officially full of Fords?
