Cutting Edge




The Arizona State Courts Building is unique in design and in construction. I took this photo from one end because of the striking image it makes. The building has a traditional appearance on the front complete with dramatic stairs and columns. From the back it looks like a modern office building that comes to this knife-like edge in this corner. The entire exterior of the building, including the roof, is rubberized except for the windows of course. If a puncture occurs in the roof, Goodyear sends out a team of people to reseal the rubber.

Reminds me of the Nat'l Art Museum in DC in that it, too, has a knife-like edge as part of the design. Great perspective. Thanks for visiting my blog.

What a unique view of a unique building. It does look like it could 'cut'!
