This way madness lies

If Joe wants to take point on explaining the origin of the Kabobagram (kebabogram?) I’ll let him. I’ll tell you about the architecture school instead!

Virginia’s campus started on “The Lawn,” which was Jefferson’s original university and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The school has grown out from that central core pretty organically–some departments are within a few minutes walk from the Lawn, others have gotten a little far-flung. The A-school, in particular, is both remote and well-hidden. I’d wager that a fraction of the student population who aren’t architecture majors even know what direction it’s in.

Of course, those who do know where it is probably aren’t telling, so they can continue using the nice A-school workstations and 3-D printers and stuff with minimal suspicion.
