The demolition of Ogg Hall - Part 1
The conceitedly titled “Master Plan” for the UW campus outlines ambitious actions that include knocking down the Humanities building, Ogg Hall, Van Hise Hall, the Peterson building, the Psychology building, University Square Mall and a slew of other buildings within the next few years. Essentially, anything mildly reminiscent of the 1960s will soon be gone. It seems that the idea of remodeling buildings rather than demolishing them was not even considered by the authors of this “Master Plan,” which will eradicate the UW’s character and create a world of generic and homogeneous Grainger Halls.
