New MSU Art Museum Animation

OK, this isn't exactly athletics, but pretty freaking cool nonetheless. The new MSU Art Museum, the "Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum" fly through animation as created by architect Zaha Hadid.

Sweet, very sweet. Ground breaking on March 15. This is GOOD, what a university with vision can do in two years and respond to a need. This, as opposed to the City of East Lansing continuing to bungle City Center II, extension after extension for more than five years, trying to take a blighted corner and create more unnecessary retail and housing. This, in a long-term down economy and creating more retail space on a street with never-ending revolving-door occupancy... Why not listen to residents' requests the last several years for more green space? Downscale the $115 million plan to make it affordable and reasonable. Create a plan that is adjustable. But, the dimwits at EL City Hall are too proud to tell the residents "you were right! It costs too much and we don't need it!"
