1. THE GOTHIC QUARTER
design conference 2019
Crystal based exhibition at the MoMA in NYC.
I always felt like my college was Hogwarts. Each class had their own emblem, the Green Griffin, the Gold Sphinx, the Red Pegasi, the Blue Lions. (Unfortunately, I got stuck with the Blue Lions. Boring in the Hogwarts world, equally boring in the real world.) That part I'd say Mount Holyoke still retains, but the architecture of University of Glasgow is strikingly similar to Hogwarts. I'm pretty convinced that J.K. Rowling must have been inspired by these arches or the spirally caps of the towers.
