Surface and Structure

Thornton Ladd and John Kelsey designed the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, which opened in 1969. I was there doing some work last year, and took some photos for myself. I'm fond of the form of this building, and love the way the Heath tiles catch light. It can be difficult to observe when you visit the museum because the landscaping overshadows the architecture, but there are some beautiful moments.
