random architectural inspiration photo #1

I took this photo about 2 years ago while driving through Austin, Texas. The photo is of a contemporary bar which sits very close to the University of Texas (Horns!) campus. While it was a very quick photo as I was sitting in the car at a traffic light, I was really inspired by the contrast of the newer materials to the older stone wall adjacent.  Sometimes, it makes a stronger connection to compliment the old with the new, rather than to simply copy it – I think this is a really successful composition of stone, metal panel & wood.

 What do you think?
