Stumbled upon, rather into, this beauty on the way out of the Academy of Sciences last Friday. Concrete structure is what it is all about for me. Nothing moves me, architecturally speaking, more than a nice monolithic space shaped by poured concrete. Tado Ando? Yes. BART Station at SFO? Yep, I was in on that. This particular tunnel reminded me of so many temples and water collectors and what have you from a trip to India I took lifetimes ago.
When the day comes that David and I get to build our own abode, I hope he won't be too surprised when our living room feels a little like this.
