haha I laugh in the face of you all, only I know the true answer! :P

How about someone gives me the names of the 1st/2nd and 3rd members of YAMS? Not including me or Brainsss. I've said before who they are, should be easy to find the answer if you know where too look! :)

Steer and darren i think...but anywho...

I like the idea of using redbrick as a main material for the college maybe with stone brick roofs... just not brass...(Darren will understand this)

oh, yes! red brick would be nice, we dont see it often. getting the bricks will be a pain though, will have to start collecting asap if thats what we are going with. :)

The beauty of this build is... it's ongoing. No end date! :D

Here's a birds eye view of what rob probably had in mind.. Don't forget to use the zoom and rotate feature! :)

Well what you are looking at in both images is the Universities at Medway and the Drill Hall Library (The longest library in Europe is what they liked saying)

And @darren I thought I would show that end for old times sake :P

Also if you look a bit further down the road to the buildings (mistakenly) labeled as NHS Medway and Captains House that could be another good design.... 2 levels built with red brick and then the top floor being stone brick?

[b]The Drill Hall Library[/b]
A major facility available to all universities at Medway students is the state-of-the-art, award-winning £10 million Drill Hall Library. The building, at 184 metres long, is thought to be the longest library in Europe and contains 2.7 miles of shelving. It houses an extensive collection of books and journals and boasts an impressive range of other facilities such as 400 personal computers, training rooms and discussion spaces for students. The library is unique in that it provides a joint service for all institutions participating in the Universities at Medway initiative.

I know that if it wasnt for the drinks & food machines in the top and bottom floors of the Medway building breaks would have been torture (10-15 min breaks - 20 mins to get to cafe = dehidration + starvation)

I think the University should have that classic old campus look to it (maybe covered with vines). Surrounded by hedges and statues and a large stone wall.
I'm submitting my application for a scholarship.
