My California Pretty Sight is an Eyesore

in ntopaz •  7 months ago  (edited)


I passed this construction site in downtown San Diego California right as the sun was going down in February 2016. You can see the sun is low enough that the ground is already in the dark. I was intrigued by the light and reflections and stopped to take some shots.

I wondered about the glass wall and thought it was unique and lovely. The people in the offices would have floor to ceiling windows, and who does not want that?

Fast forward to January 2019 and I found this building again. It is the new San Diego Superior Court building featured as the Eyesore of the Month on the website of Jim Kunstler. He features bad design in modern architecture here and most of the time I agree with him. I still think this building is pretty in the finished state as seen at his site.

But I am in the minority. Most of the commenters hate it too. I guess this is the case of beauty lying in the eye of the beholder, and in this case most of us do not see it.

I’m entering @socalsteemit’s Show Us Your California Contest with this pretty ugly building. Show us your California, and you can enter too.

I used a Canon ELPH160 point and shoot camera for this photo.
