Arizona State University, West Campus
While I was on the northwest side of town last weekend, I decided to stop at the ASU west campus to see if there was anything interesting to photograph. I found these metal gates gracing the main entrance to the campus. They were designed by sculptor Albert Paley in 1991. Paley has been a sculptor for 30 years creating all kinds of architectural features. In fact, he won a highly coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects. It's the only award they have given to a non-architect and it was given for is gift of combining art with architecture.
When you step through those gates, this is the view to the main entrance of the campus.
