In My Backyard

This is my last post from “My Backyard

A series of posts, In which I present for your review, buildings that I found “in my backyard” and photographed them for you.

All buildings are within 60 km from home

The choice to photograph these buildings was not random

They remind me of forgotten posts

For you to judge

This is Steven Holl‘s – Simons Hall , from 1992

Notice to the clear characteristics of the building envelope ,repetitive square windows without a clear reference to internal functions
