elements

A quick post before I run off to teach day #1. Yesterday afternoon, as I wandered around downtown Springfield, MA, I noticed some wonderful architectural elements on the old buildings they are in the midst of restoring. This one appears
everywhere: below, one with stripes below it - a bank building, no doubt.

Beautiful. In Milwaukee several old buildings, including the last one that I worked in, have been torn down and the intricate detailing destroyed. This is the sort of thing that is missing in contemporary architecture.
