Day 3, Entry #7 with Craig Wedderspoon discussing the Bryce Hospital controversy and the University of Alabama.
Just a quick reminder that I am not at all in the know about all this, but with that in mind, there is a new state-of-the-art facility being built as we speak to house the current and future Bryce patient population over on the Partlow property. I have not seen any plans for the site, but do know it is in progress. This will also assist in the development of a “face lift,” so to speak, for the entrance into Alberta as one passes through University Blvd. It is my understanding that certain historic sites (the main building for sure) on the Bryce campus will indeed be restored. Some others that are in extremely bad shape structurally will most likely need to come down.
I would be very surprised if there was not some sort of historical element included to honor the Bryce institution, which I think would most certainly be appropriate.
Going back to Bo’s question, I think the moving of the studios and shops could be a good thing, although it would most likely be accompanied by some complications, such as getting to other classes on time and such type concerns that exist for students having to travel extended distances in very little time. However, I have seen no solid plans to do this; I have only heard some discussions. I looked through the current master plan (2007) but could not find anything on the Bryce property.
