vine growing on a column, University of Minnesota

I've always had a fondness for architecture. I like to tell the story that I fell into design because it started with "a" and I needed a major to transfer into the college I ended up graduating from. It is a simplified version of the real story. The real story is tha I stopped at Architechture first, but lost interest and moved down one spot in the list to Art. Good thing they didn't offer anything in between, who knows what Imight have become.

As it was I attended this school mainly because of this architectural detail. I fell in love with the columns while touring the school. Then I dropped out and ended up finishing up with the aforementioned art degree at a much smaller school. Alls well that ends well.
