The University of Washington is not lacking for nice architecture.  Quite opposed to the soviet-bloc style architecture of my alma mater, UW for the most part feels the way a real old-fashioned school should – lots of ornate stone buildings with ivy up the side.  They also have this brick thing going on in places, especially the aptly-named Red Square (not to be confused with that other Red Square).  Although home to a couple statues, a lot of freshmen, and a great view of Suzallo Library, I like the brick monoliths above the best.   The fact that they only built them to ventilate the parking garage underneath only sorta detracts from them.
