    A while back I posted an image of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City. Here's a link to my original post:


    Well,...here is the other side of the building. In football when the play exhibited in first half is markedly different from the play exhibited in the second half, hack journalists might use the cliche that the game was a tale of two halves. Well,...I think that expression could be applied to the architecture of this building.

    Sigma DP1 Merrill. (The most annoying camera ever created @Rob MacKillop. I love it, though!)

    you really should watch out for those converging verticals... ;)
    i'm think the architect went through a midlife crisis halfway through the job, would have never guessed this was the same building. love the spot of red from the car.

    Was that Tardis on the right there when you took the fotie? :eek:

    Good shot, Brian.

    That's what causing the gravitation pull on the building - either that or the builders did those cables up too tight!

    What a contrast, and a damn fine image. I assume that is one of your artfully abandoned rental cars!

    Thanks Pete. (And I'm glad you explained the possible reasons for that leaning wall. I've been wondering about it. :rolleyes:)
