December 19th, 2010 – Rock This Way
Since I am in the process of building a stone retaining wall in front of our house, I decided to process this image from Seatte’s Amgen Helix Campus that I had taken last summer. One of the most striking features of this project is the huge basalt stone walls that flank the entry to the complex. These walls begin at the entry very rugged and vertically oriented. It then takes on a sloping configuration that becomes more refined as the road progresses to the buildings. I’ll definitely be using this design for inspiration in the construction of our wall which will be using a similar material. I’ll post an image or two along the way to let you all know how it’s progressing.
