Architecture & SF skyline

2002-10-14 16:10:23+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

My experience generally has been that architects are morons. Several times I've commented that what I wanted in that moment was to meet the architect who lit a building with a bat in that very same building. And beyond basic usability issues, there have been some ugly monstrosities foisted off on the world in the name of architecture. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I really like this portion of San Francisco skyline just north of the Bay Bridge. Good color without being garish, texture in the buildings without going all baroque.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of big cities(for living) but love visiting and SF has become my favorite. I am amazed how many cool looking buildings there are there considering how expensive real estate. This is one of the areas where I am glad to see form trump function.

So, how did the architect light a building with a bat?

You never saw Batman? Bruce Wayne isn't the only person who can make a cut-out for a spotlight.
