Cahill Center @ Caltech [Updated]


Cahill Center 01

I don’t know how I missed it before, but a friend of mine mentioned that I should check out the new building at Caltech if I’m into Architecture and Photography (which I am!)

The building, known as the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics at Caltech in Pasadena California, was designed by Thom Mayne founder of the architectural firm Morphosis.

Though it has received many mixed reviews and comments, for me, this is just an incredibly designed modern work of inspiration! And since I couldn’t find any photos online that did justice to this incredible building (Editorial: including the horrendous photography work done by the L.A. Times for their architectural review of the building… Really? An architectural review and this was the best photo they could take!?) I took it upon myself to capture the building the way I thought best represented the idea of a modern Astrophysics work of art facility. Here are my results:

UPDATE: As of November 2009, Caltech stumbled upon my photos of Cahill Center and asked to purchase them for publicity purposes and use for the “New Year President’s Message” from Dr. Jean-Lou Chameau. I happily obliged them and future collaborations are being discussed.
