GSB Underground?

To the Editor:

The Downtown Center of the University of Chicago (the Gleacher Center) was built without windows in its classrooms, thereby shielding Business School students from one of the finest urban vistas in this country. Since the Business School likes to isolate its students from distracting urban surroundings, should not the University consider having that school’s 58th Street building placed, except for its entrances, entirely underground? Most of the surface of the area behind Ida Noyes allocated to this new building might then be made into a lovely park from which much of the campus, including Rockefeller Chapel, could be viewed with pleasure, if not even with profit, for many generations to come.

Respectfully yours,
