Since the first concrete was poured, I've watched this building grow. First, impressed by the concrete work - its texture, clean lines and consistency, then the brown steel corrugated siding and finally glasswork.
All along, I wondered what this super clean, cool, modern building might become. As it turns out, It stores utilities. Well, I say 'utilities' but I really don't know what is inside other than huge ducts covered in insulation that remind me of a 1960's space-age movie which look like they come alive at night for a dance party. I assume from the enormous condensers on top of the building this is housing for some of the air conditioning at the hospital.
|You can't tell from this photo but the steel edging which contains the gravel at grade is wobbly which is one of my pet peeves! Why wouldn't they use heavy steel to make a crisp line rather than pre-made edging that always seems to fail?|
|The glass slits (windows) reflect the line of Liquidambar across the sidewalk for a gorgeous effect.|
|See the trees? Isn't that beautiful!|
