Seems a little monestary inside, which is more closed than quiet. Besides, there is too much SIZA while too little related elegance.

The thin roof joining these into a long bar building is not enough to mask the fact that these are just a series of bad modern buildings. Are these students getting a Phd in 'How To Survive Prison'? I mean there are zero signs of life or joy here. Some of the interior detailing is nice, but this could have been much better.
