New UB Med School Inside and Out: Video

I stumbled on this, hot off the press, computer generated video showing the new University of Buffalo Medical School. The video flies around the building, which is now under construction, and  then travels inside to show classrooms, labs, public spaces and conferences rooms.  This video shows much more detail than has ever been revealed before. This part of town is being transformed so thoroughly it is hard to imagine what it will be like.  This video gets you a little closer to the future of the Allen, Main, and High Street neighborhood.

My one complaint you ask?  The Main Street side of this building is not permeable enough.  The long, mostly solid wall of glass, is a big missed opportunity. We have to stop thinking of buildings as simply pretty objects to look at.
