Skidmore College's overall architecture is one of uninspiring inconsistency, where contemporary window treatments clash with old brick and concrete. With stark buildings placed haphazardly throughout its beautiful surroundings, this campus lacks both a true university feel and a unified design. One saving grace of the campus is the Arthur Zankel Music Center, which actually has nice lines, but then you get to the Williamson Sports Center, and you see a big metal box with green and yellow paint all over it. As a whole, the materials make the buildings appear monotonous and unsure if they want to update, renovate, or stay the same.
