Sails in the Desert


This was taken at the back of the offices for Richard Bauer Architects.  This office building is within walking distance from my house but, I just noticed these sails recently.  The firm of Ricard Bauer has many wonderful buildings in Arizona and I've even featured some of them.  Most recently I had photos from the new South Mountain Library adjacent to the South Mountain Community College Campus.

The work this firm does makes my heart sing.  I love everything they've done and you can see a sample by clicking on the link to their web site here.  The firm specializes in Libraries and have won many awards for their designs.  They even designed the interiors of two of my favorite neighborhood restaurants, Cheuvront's Wine Bar and Fez.

An architectural firm, I guess, needs to be creative in the way they design their own offices.

Eye-catching designs. I agree.

How interesting. Those sails look like they might be utilitarian to keep out the sun? Maybe for form and function both!

I can understand your feelings about this firm. Looking over their website, I find their designs to be very attractive; light and airy; modern but not overpoweringly so.

I remember your library post! Love these sails - I guess they provide a bit of extra shade and privacy?

Wonderful design. I loved going to Cheuvront's. My sister took me to the Fez once. I wasn't too impressed.

Very interesting, I wonder what they use this area for, looks like a back patio or deck.

Interesting repetitive pattern these sails make.
