|Thank you, Annie - what a great range of architectural ideas. |
The one in Cambridge gives me the williwaws. Hard to walk under a structure that looks as if it could fall on you at any minute! But since it's MIT, I guess it can be trusted not to!
|Love the Center for the Performing Arts in China. The Building Museum in DC is the absolute best place to go on a sweltering summer day here. They offer wonderful field trip experiences for kids and it is a lovely venue for parties. Love that place! |
All the pictures were fun and the artistic approaches of the photography made each building interesting even though some may not be when viewed in totality.
Thanks for sharing, Annie.
|They chose a really odd angle to photograph the building at MIT--when you are driving or walking by it, it looks crumpled, but not as if it will fall on you. |
But even MIT buildings can have issues. The Kresge Auditorium there, which was a design marvel when it was built, has suffered from either design flaws or engineering flaws and the roof has had to be fixed/replaced several times. It had to be closed completely for a year at one point.
