The overall architectural scheme at Cal Tech has never made much of an impresson on me; many of the early Italian-Mediterranean style structures have a bleakness about them; as if constrained by a tight budget. To make matters worse, much of the post WWII modernist buildings have done little to compliment the old.

Reading (Los Angeles Times architecture critic) Christopher Hawthorne's review (dated February 16, 2009) of Architect Thom Mayne's new Cahill Center, I confess, gave me a thrill. Mayne's boldly 'fractured mass' is arresting and thought-provoking.
