In my past professional lives, I have been a salesman, an auto mechanic, a draftsman, a security guard, a cartographer of cemeteries, and a Russian, Serbian, and Croatian Linguist whilst in the Army. Now, I have found my calling in life, hence the architectural student status. I am in my 5th and last year of schooling to get my Bachelors of Architecture.

For those that have asked, I am from Tennessee and always will be, regardless of what state I am currently residing, hence the TN in my name.

On one wall is the historic brick-and-limestone Memorial Arch saved from
Memorial Stadium when it was demolished in 1992. The arch signals the entry
to the memorabilia-filled Heritage Hall, an eclectic collection of
university history. Predock decided to "hang" the arch like a painting on
the inward sloping wall rather than using it in a more expected manner as an
entry or a freestanding monument.

That's ... interesting. I'm trying to figure out what happens above the arch. Does it meet up with a straight edge of a vertical wall that continues up to a ceiling?

Actually, if I remember correctly, it kind of dies off into the bottom of a projecting balcony or room.

"dies off" sounds a bit disappointing. But I like the basic idea of hanging a remnant like a painting, something to be contemplated in and of itself...

It's very striking. I like it.
