SSP University. The university was founded in 1950 for the architectural studies that were popular at the time. During the 70's a medical research building was added. It is now one of the largest medical research facilities in the city.

Medical Research facility. It includes two towers, tower 1 is 10 stories while tower 2 is 16.


In 2000 the SSPU announced a plan to build new buildings including the dorm tower, new class towers a, a performing arts center and a gymnasium.

The new dorm buildings are 21 stories each and were completed late 2004. They have a twin tower design with rooftop decks for students. The first three floors include some retail but are mostly classrooms.




The gymnasium was later completed in 2006 and was the most expensive of the new buildings. Although the building is 185 feet tall it only has 8 visible floors. Officially the tower has 9 floors since one is in the stands in the pool atrium. The pool is located on the last level. Since SSP City always had a good swimming team, the university offered to include an Olympic sized pool in exchange of some tax relief.




The seventh floor has two tennis courts and two basketball courts with a bowling alley in construction.


The Performing Arts Center is U/C with an expected date of completion of late 2008. It is annexed to the Medical Research Center but there is no access to either building from the connecting walls.


The last building is approved and is having foundation work done at the site. It will be 8 or 9 floors and has a zig-zag design to allow more open space while providing the number of class rooms and offices needed.

Wow, no commentaries?

Anyways, who ever wins can finish theirs next and yeah. It seems like comps are gonna have to be longer. This part of the forum is zzzz...

As always, I never vote for my self. So I chose MikeR's. Nice towers and the whole campus would look nice finished. Very university like feeling. And I liked Tanster's layout but I didn't get as much of a picture of what the University would look like as MikeR's. Both good though.

Skyscraper100 Oct 5, 2008 7:43 AM

i voted for alek's university :)

Austin55 Oct 5, 2008 5:21 PM

I accidently voted wrong-just add an extra imaginary vote to MikeR.I also like aleks,but the layout dint look good,is to jumbly,and just not my style,butthe medical building as awesome.

I zagree with Aleks-if tanster had done alittle more it couldeve won.

well looks like ima lose,time to go soup up mine for TC.

Dac150 Oct 5, 2008 7:23 PM

I have to go with Alek's. They're all pretty good overall.

FlyersFan118 Oct 6, 2008 2:08 AM

gotta go with alek's. real good work there. i wish i had more time to work on my own. oh well, maybe i'll get ambitious and incorporate it into something i make in the future. i think it's just too big and i just don't have enough time to do anything with it.

Mocholate Oct 23, 2008 11:43 AM

I'd love it if we picked a empty spot in a major city such as New York and have a design competition for it, its cool now since Google Earth added all those automatic 3d buildings so you can see your design against the skyline.

Aleks Oct 24, 2008 2:55 AM

I was thinking the same thing too. I'm torn though, I want to do and in New York competition, an in Chicago one or a bridge one. Which one would make a better comp?

mikeR Oct 24, 2008 4:40 AM

Lets do bridge
Bridges are cool and I would probably have time to do a bridge but probably not a building though

treras93 Oct 24, 2008 4:44 AM

ya i would have to say a bridge too:yes:

Patrick Oct 24, 2008 5:11 AM

no bridges, if so ill pass againnnnnnnnnnn

Aleks Oct 24, 2008 5:18 AM

Hmm.. maybe I'll think of something else.. something that mostly everyone will like... Hopefully that will start a mini-sketchup boom in the forum.

Mocholate Oct 24, 2008 8:22 AM

A modern day London bridge? Something that is more than a bridge ?
A crossing challenge where an ingenious feat of engineering is required to pass traffic across i.e cheapskate bay bridge?
