New Bodleian reno

I'm sorry, but this artistic rendering depicts the same old fairly uninspiring and frankly kind of ugly building. I'm all for saving facades, but couldn't they have done something with the "well-equipped swimming bath," as described by Jan Morris in 1965?

It may be state-of-the-art preservation, but it certainly doesn't make the heart sing.

More photos here.
