SIJ - Day 1: Detail - Cesar Pelli's Malone Center

A bit of an introduction. A year ago I shot a series of architectural studies at Yale University. In the interim I have happened upon Mu 4/3 and have decided to try to recreate a similar set of studies in this format. This is to satisfy a desire to learn these cameras and format as well as to improve on the original series. Since I work at the University, it is also convenient

This photograph is of the Daniel L. Malone Engineering Center on the bottom; designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates Architects and completed in 2005, the Malone Center is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified building. It is clad in limestone veneer - which can be seen here - and features a sweeping glass curtain wall - on the opposite side of the building. (I'll get to that eventually.) The building was designed to relate in scale to Watson Hall, which is seen here at the top of the photo. Watson Hall was completed in 1986 and was designed by Roth & Moore Architects. It houses The Department of Computer Science at Yale. In the course of this month, I will photograph many of the buildings of ale University. if you want to relate the buildings I photograph to each other, you can do so by using this campus map: http://www.yale.edu/caspy/yalemap.pdf
What a great perspective. Most of us - yep mainly me - never think to look up and we miss these excellent shapes and forms.

Great scene. It almost looks as thought he building's are at war with teach other...fighting for space or air...
 
Like Mark, I hardly ever look up, But truth to tell, buildings like this are rare where I live. I love this.
 
A great shot. I love the way the angles of the buildings lead your eye through the picture to the sky far above.
 
Very very very nicely done. What a great combination of colors, angles, and subject matter. Lovely photo!
 
A disconcerting, but not unpleasant perspective, like looking up out of a man made canyon.
