    Haha!

    I am attending night classes at a recently open BSF school. As we walked in for the first time, a fair few people all said "Urgh it looks like a prison!"

    It looks really cheap and unfinished. Bare concrete walls and ceilings have been left unfinished, although apparently thats fashionable. Last night, all the lights stopped work.

    Lol. They're probably ran by a managed service and will only allow X amount of light hours per day

    Both excellent comments.

    Another thing that bugs me is that parts of the building are held up by big multi coloured sticks of rock - just looks ridiculous.

    Was just about to look for that.

    Its unbelievable it really is. I mean i know theres always gunna be some wierdo who puts a proposal for such things but for the powers that be to look at it and think "oh that looks alright, how much money do you need?"...
    It looks like something you would design on Sim City

    Have you seen the college btw? Its finished apparently, but to anyone looking at it you would think it was just unfinished dry wall sheets.

    I always thought the idea of designing something was to make it functional first, then make it pretty. They seem to be doing it the other way round here - thinking about prettiness then sticking rooms inside.

    Unplastered walls cause lots of echo, large open areas are usually a nightmare to work in - so these new foyer areas they are putting in are going to be atrocious. It's simply bad design.

    Hey the school designers did a good job, I was wondering how they were going to get students from throwing things off the top floors
