Really, Buddy? Hill?


HiddenCity, the blog beloved by all URBS majors and city design lovers, recently wrote an ode to Hill College House. The 1100-word love letter waxes poetic on Hill's architectural sexiness and historical changes. Originally, the building was designed as Penn's all-women's dorm — totes not the case anymore, just ask any Penn kid whose parents first locked eyes in their suite. Sure, the building has a "fortress-like aesthetic", but it also has a "light-filled atrium" and a bunch of other stuff we never noticed because, oh yeah, we lived in the Quad freshman year.

We don't really get it, but hopefully this pieces makes a lot of Hill residents happy! Somebody should swipe this lady in for Hill brunch soon.
