Speaking of Domes



Here's another dome my camera found.  This one is located in downtown Phoenix and is now part of the downtown Phoenix campus of Arizona State University.

I did a post about this place back in 2010.  It started out as a shopping and entertainment center with a Spanish ambiance.  I think the economic downturn of 2007/2008 hit the shops rather hard but, at that time ASU was expanding its presence in the downtown area.  The school snapped up the space and it still remains part of the campus.

It's kind of a quirky dome, don't you think?
