“Architecture is the very mirror of life.You only have to cast your eyes on buildings to feel the presence of the past, the spirit of a place; they are the reflection of society”. ~I. M. Pei Les Grands desseins du Louvre (with E J Biasini)
I love architecture from all periods and cultures in the history of the world. I’m also fond of reflections, whether it’s in a mirror, window, water, or a glass building. I have a series of tall buildings from a recent trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. These structures show reflections of buildings adjacent to them. You will note many different styles of architecture, but the reflections are whimsical.
The glass in which they are reflected throws off their balance and perfect structure; their straight steel beams and their arched windows now appear to be broken, twisted, wavy or curvy.
Come enjoy my Whimsical Architectural Reflections, and be glad that they are only reflections.
This building (above) was the hotel we stayed in.
This one looks like a topsy-turvy sand castle to me!
Grand Rapids is the second largest city in Michigan, following Detroit in population and size. It’s a great city to visit. Click here to find out more about Grand Rapids.
