A 'Skybridge' to New

The New College Village has been developed by New College. One of the wonderful characteristics of the New College community is its sense of fun. Each year it plans and mounts a Revue of the year's activities which is always a great production and is open to the College, University and the public. A revue is meant to be an amusing or satirical commentary on life on the College. One of the items on the program last week was 'The Skybridge'. It was one resident's 'tongue in cheek' comment on how we might bring the old New College and the new "New College Village" together. What do you think?

Not sure if this is an engineering possibility! As for the cost, I'm sure it would be well beyond us. Thanks to David Butterworth for letting us use his image. For the record, the Revue was a wonderful celebration of the talent of the College community. Perhaps the New College Village will have its own Revue in 2009 in the Main Common Room.

I believe you are missing an important part of this grand 'edifice' ...

Mmmm, just looking around for the right image to adorn this grand structure. Those available all seem, well, insufficient!

Well, it's certainly grand!

Will there be a moving footpath for the more mature postgraduate? Should there be a drinks station half way across given its marathon length?

At least, blue tinted glass will accentuate those sunny skies Sydney always enjoys!

Hi Bill, I'm sure that elderly alumni will be taken care of by younger residents. Our innovative residents might have their own ideas - perhaps teleportation! Cheers, Trevor
