Arch of the Day #2263

Another spectacle for morning and night, drawing the gaze back into its careful arrangement of geometries.

I suppose thoughtful architects will consider carefully how their structures will look both in sun and in lamplight; each light source provides a different set of restraints and options. Here at night you have a bit more control over shadows and gradients, and each segment has a more organic feel.

So much of architecture is just shapes for the sake of shapes, and I love that.
