Open Space For New Widener Building

March 17, 2010

Demolition of Victory and Loveland halls wrapped up late last week, clearing space for the new academic building that will house the School of Nursing and the Oskin Institute.  Construction is set to begin this summer, but for now there is a temporary side view of Old Main from the Kapelski Learning Center.

Below is a panoramic shot of that view taken from the lawn of the Kapelski lawn on Wednesday afternoon that shows, from left, Alumni Auditorium, Old Main, Muller Hall (admissions), Hyatt Hall and University Center.  You can click on the image to enlarge it, but please forgive any slight distortions as this image consists of three photographs digitally stitched together.

And here is a cropped image of the artist’s rendering of plans for the new academic building.  I tried to take the picture above from roughly the same vantage point as the drawing below, although the image below does not have the panoramic width.
