Too bad, cause it looked pretty amazing. That side of the library has needed a renovation for a very long time now.

I also noticed on the new campus master plan map, that the Biology building is to be replaced. According to this map, it also looks like Engineering will get two new buildings just north of Shelby Hall.

To the West side of campus, looks like the Business College will get a new building across from the Bruno building.

What I think the University of moving towards is expanding on their system of multiple, specialized libraries that are in or near the buildings that house that specialty's college. I'm sure Gorgas will be expanded in the future because of the overwhelming need for more space, but I think they've tabled that until it becomes a dire need... which, I would argue is already the case.

Is UA going to give the new Biology building this name? Haven't heard anything about it. But I agree it is a great idea

If they don't have plans to do so, they should. I don't know if it's because EO Wilson has sought to be a silent champion for the sciences, or if UA just hasn't done what they can to exploit his ties to Alabama.
