    In the lobby of BBVA Bancomer Operations Center in Mexico City, a striking interior wall translates the aesthetics of the buildings exterior to the human scale. The wall is composed of interlocking bent aluminum fins, similar to the much larger components of the buildings facade. The result is an optical display that creates shifting perceptions of geometry, materiality, and color as visitors and bank employees move through the space.

    SOM''s Gordon Bunshaft designed the cylindrical form of the Hirshhorn Museum for the exhibition, study, and storage of Joseph Hirshhorn''s art collection. Measuring 231 feet in diameter, the building is supported on four sculptural columns that rise 14 feet above a central plaza. The design allows visitors to pass under the museum and extends the visual experience to the surrounding context of the National Mall. Last night, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our office in Washington, D.C. at the museum, a place that remains close to our hearts. Thanks to the @Hirshhorn for having us, and to D.C. for the last 50 years. Heres to 50 more! Photo Ezra Stoller #Architecture #Design #WashingtonDC #Brutalism #ThrowbackThursday
