Yes this building really exists. What a wonder…
Susan says, “I guess that anything is now possible in architecture with the new materials available to builders. But my feeling, at least from this angle, is that there was a failure somewhere along the way. Do you see the Star Wars stormtrooper peering out at you? Or waves of foam? I think I better let Lucia tell you why it is a success.”
Lucia says, “I have to admit, this was not easy to capture. My modus operandi is to look at a scene from many angles. This was not an exception and even took more effort than most. When you come around the corner and see this structure, it takes you by surprise. What is it? Is it art? Or is it functional? Or both? Is it representative of the river flowing by this building? No matter what, it definitely stops you in your tracks when you first see it. And trying to make a photo out of it posed a real challenge. In this angle, I tried to capture as much of the wavy design while still showing it’s on the side of a building. I’m afraid I didn’t succeed in representing the actual surprise element of this facade, but I might have created a conversation piece.”
Who do you back in this discussion, Lucia or Susan? Or are you somewhere in the middle. Please let us know what you think?
