  2. Kinda looks like the sky around here today. Only without the excessive glass and steel. Must be wild to look up around your hood.

  3. This caught my eye immediately when I went to post my Skywatch. I really like this; would make a great giant wall photo.

    I like your new banner, too.

  8. Arcitects are simply artists who work in the medium of concrete glass and steel. Wonderful shot

  17. These two buildings must really stand out in contrast to the traditional ones surrounding them.

  18. As we toured London on one of the Thames boats, we saw a number of odd buildings, and they all seemed to be attributed to the same architect. The guide on the boat laughingly refered to him as Lord Wobbly--not sure if that's name or nickname. This reminded me of Lord Wobbly.

  19. Very interesting post Daryl. Enjoyed reading all about it. Especially as I have walked past and admired it many times. I didn't know what it was or how environmentally friendly it is. Must email you about it. Presume this might be extremely close to where you work ;-) If only I had known!

    Also enjoyed the post below and the history also. Fancy being paid by the Met Opera to stop producing opera!

    Am actually very surprised that no-one else seemed to look up the reference or comment on it. Oh, the fleeting comments from sky-watchers...and others bound to read as many blogs as possible. In so little time!
