A Quick Campus Tour

Dan and I both work on beautiful college campuses. His office is in the Kravis Center, a building designed by architect Rafael Vinoly, which features a space called the Living Room (aka "Kube) which floats on a Mesabi black granite reflecting pool which creates a moat-like effect seen below.

Scripps College where I work was founded in 1926 and the campus is breathtaking. The photos below are only a few snapped on my walk to work and don't truly capture all the beauty of the college. The architecture style is the Mediterranean style popular in Southern California in the 1920s and 30s.

A little news from Annie - she is surviving this "cold" California winter by doing a lot of cuddling on blankets in between my or Dan's legs for added warmth . . .
