This striking architecture is the Grady Gammage Auditorium, ASU's main performing arts center, and for many years, home to the Phoenix Symphony. It's unique design was the last public commission of the famous architect, Frank Loyd Wright. It was reportedly designed from a sketch by Write of a Baghdad opera house. The auditorium was also the site of the third presidential debate in the 2004 election.

I will be fairly busy over the next week or so, so I'm not sure how many chances I'll get to post, but I'll do my best.

Wow, this really is fascinating architecture...! Extra nice in B&W ofcourse, because now we can focus on the forms. Really nice one.

Interesting history you've captured here. I can certainly see how it would fit in with the architecture overseas.

Awesome! I love this photo. Very abstract. It's all about line, form, and tone. Really nice.
