Ever since I read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged on a summer vacation, I have always had an admiration for the people who design such unique buildings. This book would make for a great winter read. Also, you might want to check out the movie version of the book with Gary Cooper and Lauren Bacall. It is a great visual of Rand's story and characters.
The second item that I wanted to share is a transplanted school-house nestled in the entry way to the grounds of the Park. As a first hall of learning in the region, from the 1800s, it is great to see it in such a setting. I took a photo of the school.
When I downloaded the photos later, it seemed like an interesting juxtaposition of the old and the new. Architecture has a way of linking the past and present, a time capsule of the past and a vision of the future.
Do you have any favourite buildings that have left an impression on you? Any favourite styles that speak to you for their creativity?
Maybe you will see one of these buildings soon. have a great weekend! :)
