odd building...

for only the second time in10 years of searching, i finally found a second snapshot of le corbusier and xenakis' philips pavilion for the 1958 photo someone wrote "odd building".

what's great is that every photo of the structure shows how different the building looked from different angles - and in this one, the form seems much less severe and almost deflated. it's also great to see the entrance opening, which kind of disrupts the feeling that the building is a skin.

amazing, nice work. if you ever get to Brussels, these little wire and plaster models of the Philips Pavilion are from the permanent collection at the Atomium
