stata rain

it’s about 4pm on a tuesday and i’m ensconced in a glass atrium 5 stories about the street.  in front of me is a 60 foot high wall of glass, unbroken by frame or girder.  beyond that, a shrine to architecture is the horizon.

due to it now being summer vacation at MIT, and this atrium being behind a maze of locked doors and elevators, it’s just me in here.

i’m doing science on my laptop and there’s an epic thunderstorm going on about 3 inches of plate glass away.  i hope the lightning comes closer, since i can see so much sky out of these windows.  i crane my ahead all the way back to see drops of rain begin their long meandering journey down the plate glass and to my desk.

this is bliss.

    Looks like someone dropped a roll of toilet paper across the street… and punched windows in it =P

    if you ever see the documentary “sketches of frank gehry,” you’ll see that that is indeed how he works. watching his design process is simultaneously awe-inspiring and terrifying.

    Interestingly enough, Right across the street from my gym is a frank gehry building, the IAC building on 18th and 9a. It looks like someone took a regular building, but twisted it 90 degrees. I always seem to find my self staring at it every time I walk by the building…
