For Sally D’s Mobile Photo Challenge: Challenger’s choice.
MoPOP’s futuristic Frank O. Gehry designed building is constructed of over 21,000 aluminum and stainless steel shingles and 280 steel ribs. If its 400 tons of structural steel were stretched into the lightest banjo string it would extend one-fourth of the way to Venus.
This post is a follow-up of the post I did last Monday (Black and White). These two photos may give a better picture of Gehry’s unusual architecture design of the museum. The unusual curves, forms, and size of the building, it was fun to wander, but challenging to decide what to capture. I think iPhone 6 did a good job. To see more, visit www.architecturaldigest.com
Sally’s choice is Siberian iris. She describes eloquently, “Every flower has its own narrative and personality. But some flatter your attention with gusto, and dazzle with design, intensity, patterns, vibrancy… Their lure is undeniable; their style is majestic.” Take a look.
