An international maze at Bucknell
Bucknell’s campus has increased a lot during the past decades. Every year more students come, new majors are offered, new buildings must be created. One of the main points is that new dorms must exist, so that new students are able to live on campus. One place where students have the possibility to live at Bucknell is in the small affinity houses on St. George Street. Leiser House is one of those houses, which is a place where americans and international students can live and discuss about intercultural topics.
Due to more and more students willing to live on Leiser House, Bucknell has made many additions to this home over the past years. In the picture below it is possible to notice at least 4 different construction periods for that building, what makes a total of 3 room extensions. Adding new rooms after the original construction made this house not aesthetically pleasant when seen from its sides.
Both the inside and the outside of the house reveal the facts pointed out in this text. The additions made over time, did not form an uniform construction, leading to this failures in the design of the building and on the experience of those who go there.
