ConcavityThis is the fourth image in my abstract architecture series (see THIS post for the series introduction).  I’ve been racking my brain on this one for a couple weeks and I just can’t come up with a title for it.  Nothing comes to mind (meaning my mind doesn’t draw any imagery associations) even though I really do like it.  Thus, it shall remain untitled for the foreseeable future.  Feel free to throw out any suggestions you may have!

[Update: My friend, Billi Joy suggested the name, Concavity and I liked it so the title has been updated since the original Untitled Post].

I have always been drawn to this particular design element of the Hayden Library on ASU’s campus.  I like the use of positive and negative space in its form as well as the details and texture of the concrete.  It serves only as a decorative façade (as far as I can tell there’s no structural need for it) and it sure makes the main entrance grand.  The other interesting thing about it is that, when standing on top of the library entrance (the entrance courtyard is below ground level), it also serves as an interesting decorative element to the ASU landscape when viewed from ground level, opposite the POV of this photograph.  I love design for design’s sake!
