Extreme distortion

It's not the lens. It's the twisted vision of a brilliant architect, Zaha Hadid. The structure is the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum under construction on the Michigan State University grounds in my town of East Lansing MI.

Although I don't think it was deliberate, some design features resemble turbine or helicopter rotor blades, airplane slats and ailerons, things I'm fascinated with. In one of the photos, even a tree appears to be confused:)

Some of the photos are excessively cropped to eliminate construction material and equipment littering the grounds.

Google "Zaha Hadid images" for more of her designs all over the planet.

Thanks for looking.

seems to have become the antithesis of Louis Sullivan's law that form must follow function
now the museum now often eclipses its holdings
thanks for sharing these photographs of this museum being built
I liked the middle one best
well framed & beautifully rendered in BW
