bridges too far

Showy architecture in educational settings does very little other than make donors feel important. Students, by and large--no matter age, race, gender, cultural position, or level of wealth--do not pay attention to their surroundings. They are vaguely aware when things are different, but they don't waste time wondering if they should be inspired by some gesture that a design team sweated over for hours.
