SIJ - Day 10: Malone Center Interior Detail

Well, I've done quite a few gothic interiors and portals; I will return to those shortly, but here is some modern architecture. On Day 1 I showed the exterior of the Malone Center. I mentioned in the description that the "front" of the building "features a sweeping glass curtain wall." This is that wall of glass. Five stories high, it overlooks the now-paved over Farmington Canal. The Farmington Canal, also known as the New Haven and Northampton Canal, was a major private canal built in the early 19th century to provide water transportation from New Haven into the interior of Connecticut, Massachusetts and beyond. With the advent of railroads, it was quickly converted to a railroad in the mid-19th century and in recent years has been converted to a multi-use trail (a rails-to-trails project) after being abandoned for years. It is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 under the name "Farmington Canal-New Haven and Northampton Canal."

Back to the building, the Daniel L. Malone Engineering was designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates Architects and completed in 2005. It is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold-certified building.

The ideal version of this photo would have fall trees in full color perhaps, but I'll take what I can get...
I like the building, and the dramatic sense of depth conveyed by your use of the wide angle lens, but my favorite part of this photo is the sky - wonderful blues which seem to take on a slightly different shade in each window. Magical!
I'm glad you kept the doors showing on the right. It's good to see other sides of Yale's architecture, but for now my heart belongs to the "Goths". :wink:

Nicely done, Seaain!
Such a stark contrast to the rest of your Yale portfolio so far Seeain. Hey, I still like it and what you've done with the depth and repetition...but just such a different style - and reflected in how you've chosen to process it.

Really enjoying this series so far...
I love the sweep of the windows and their reflection on the floor and just the strip of interior wall to anchor the image.
