So I haven't been able to make it up to Troy recently, but I heard that there is a new Palladium on top of Bibb Graves that was added during the recent construction and remodeling.

Anyone have photos?

From what I saw, the copula was just preserved. I didn't notice any difference. I suppose there IS a chance they had it reconstructed out of metal and fiberglass, but it doesn't look different from what I can tell.

The palladium hasn't been replaced. I think they just painted it. The inside is amazing and the back-quad/trojan center quad looks amazing. I have some pictures, I'll upload them tomorrow. They demolished the amphitheater and are currently re-building it behind the Chancellor's house as phase 2 of the restoration project in that area. When finished it will seat 1,000+.

Now I can tell why they want to trash Malone. It's an eye sore with a renovated back quad. They also need to do some renovation to Wallace and make that for TV/Radio/Journalism/Etc then build a HUGE new library. We need one like it's NOBODY's business.

Made that walk from the Adams Center to Alumni more times than I can remember. I was just at Troy but I got to thinking...Is there still Ivy or Kudzu on the wall behind Bibb Graves or was that wall demolished? The new quad area is beautiful. The campus just keeps getting more beautiful.

It was ivy and I think the wall's ivy was removed, but I think the wall was kept inside.

I do agree though, the campus is getting more and more beautiful!

While I agree it looks incredible, I've always been a slave to nostaligia. Seeing the old flowering bushes gone and the views I remember is a bit sad.

Agreed. It looks fantastic but it is still sad when part of the past is gone. As much as I love Veterans Stadium now, it is still sad that the stadium (as I played in) is changed forever.

The wall was not preserved. It was ripped away to make room for the additional buildup that was the upper back courtyard of Bibb Graves.
