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.

Very impressive architecture and so different with lighting. I love the first silvery one better.

Glad you took both photos because the dimensions are completely different. Soft silvery wall looks small. Saturated blue building with door shows more texture. Striking! bsk
