My dad took a bunch of beautiful photos of the Dale Chihuly installation in place at the Salk Institute right now. The Salk is definitely one of the most noteworthy (and unbelievably beautiful) architectural properties in San Diego. It was designed in 1959 by Louis Kahn (midcentury!) and is constructed entirely of concrete, with wood details (I think teak if I remember correctly), marble, and water. My mom works there so she gets to walk into the expansive courtyard every morning on the way up to her lab. Nice workplace vibe, no?
I’m quite fond of Chihuly’s seaforms, but this is all nice too. Especially that old boat. Mmm. Old + new always looks good together.
Thanks for the photos, dad! And hope you all have a pretty spring weekend.
