It's going to be another white elephant like bloody building 8.

Seen the floor plans, yet again more wasted space with stupidly shaped rooms that won't take conventional (ie usefull) furniture.

That's 3 ugly buildings now they have on Swanston, the purple and green monstrosity which again, is useless inside with it's stupid floor system and layout, building 8 and this one. Sadly we can't even whisk tourists past it quickly as the superstop has already begun to be constructed outside of The Oxford.

oh and btw: RMIT is apparently suing the architect of: http://www.seangodsell.com/rmit-design-hub

someone has worked out that you can literally walk up to the side of the building and climb straight up the framework that holds the glass panels. Some temporary fencing has been erected quick-smart.


ps. Outside renovations of building 10, 12 and 14 are to begin shortly.

This opens today to students.

I've been through it.... it's a shocker. Some great ideas, but in terms of usefullness, it's horrible.
