“Beauty is a form of genius – is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon.”

Oscar Wilde

A Bridge

A BrdgeThe best engineer a few decades ago was someone who could create the most beautiful beam or structure; today it’s to do a structure you cannot see or understand how it’s done. It disappears and you can talk only about color, symbols, and light. It’s an aesthetic of miracle. – Jean Nouvel

These mega structures, their bold reflective facades, and they catch each others reflection. They place where they stand the space in between them tell us a story, every day, every week, every month, years and generations to come.

“One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again.” – Renzo Piano
