Whimsical Windows - Venue Views


Toby's fun architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors is back, and my subject today is based on a fundraising event held by my previous employer CDR (now a customer) held at the Savin Rock Conference Center in west Haven, CT. The event included on a closed course walkers and wheelchairs, this referred to as the seventh annual Wheel-A-Thon. The center is along Long Island Sound and the building once held several restaurants but now is an events venue. The walls of windows style is mid-70s, and attractive on the outside.

Interesting on the inside too. Note the banner we see outside the venue - and from inside too. The perspective of both views gives the same object a completely different feel while under a blue sky or through the window blinds...the day was nice, over $16000 was raised for scholarships for disabled youth and windows and doors were noticed. What's not to like about this day?

the 70s was not exactly a proud era for architecture, but I really like this building. the view on the left is wonderful with all those lines under the archway.

That amazing archway is my favorite.

I also love the archway - what a great geometrical game! Doesn't look terribly wheelchair-friendly, though :(
