    • I wanted to show another perspective to Fed Square, with a particular emphasis on the architectural geometry and textures that combine modern and earthy (pinkish walls and floors) appeal.

  1. Hu-wow! A whoa-place! Being a fan of Frank Gehry,I love unique buildings. Would love to see this one myself. Must have been so fascinating. Never actually heard of it. Thanks for the share.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Fed Square is somewhat similar to Gehry’s Getty Museum: Getty has travertine and glass for walls while Fed Square has sandstone blocks, glass, and zinc. There’s a lot of funky architecture here that I plan to post in the future.

  2. What amazing photos! I clicked through to the info on the Square – the programming looks to be just as ambitious as the architecture. I hope to see it in person someday.
