Applications to Stony Brook University will likely quadruple in the event of a nuclear winter; the 1960s bunker-like buildings create an unparalleled sense of Cold War safety. In 1980, two futuristic buildings were added in an attempt to introduce some visual lightness. The result? You really need to see for yourself. The octagonal hospital, for instance, appears to be receiving an IV from the Health Sciences Center. Not all is bad and gloomy here. A new LEED-certified Computer Science Building, with a massive atrium lobby, was opened in July.
