Architecture and Light
I went to Roosevelt Field today to go to the Apple store, and to do a bit of shopping. When I left, it was late in the afternoon, and this outside wall of the new Neiman Marcus store was illuminated by the sunlight from the west. I had noticed the unusual pattern of gray rectangles, but had never seen it illuminated this way. So I stopped and had some fun. It really is a striking scene! I discovered that Elkus Manfredi Architects was the design architect. Then I went and did a bit more exploring. This is the same wall construction, just around the corner, but with blue skylight glancing off it. Quite a change. Please click on these to see them in more detail.
