Perspective

MSOE Schroeder Room

I definitely was paying attention at the Faculty Senate meeting this morning in the Schroeder Room of MSOE’s Walter Schroeder Library!

But sitting in a different seat than usual led to a new perspective on a view that is normally at my back.  As I focused on our invited guest, I couldn’t help but notice the interesting parallel lines and planes behind him on the other side of that window.

I think today’s lack of shadows and glare—thanks to a gray, cloudy sky—amplified the building’s spare geometry even more than if it had been a sunny day.
