Old and new

My sources tell me the beautiful old buildings on the Princeton campus look a lot better on the outside then on the inside. I did not have the opportunity to verify that but I am sure it is true... in most buildings. The interior of this building, East Pyne Hall, may be the exception (it is the same building shown in my earlier post). The windows and many architectural details are true to the original design, but the interior has been recently transformed into a tasteful mix of old and new. The sculpture and translucent glass floor work well against the old arched windows.

  1. With the sculpture on the ceiling I assume that every day is partly cloudy inside East Pyne Hall. The old and new do work well together here.
