Dome Darkening Nicely

Academic Hall’s dome has lost the copper shine it had when I photographed it in March of 2013.

I wonder how long it’ll take to get the nice, green patina the old dome had? Here are some earlier stories about Academic Hall.

  1. Just talked to Dr. James Dufek today. He said that the dome has a Plexiglas addition that makes the inside visible. It was added during the renovation. I hope to see it soon. Have you seen it yet?

  2. Sometime in the late seventies or early eighties, the dome had repair/renovation work done. When that project was complete, the new pieces were hastened to the green patina in a chemical process. Architect Thomas Phillips was involved in the process.
