Instead of a dumpster view (as usual), we actually had this sightline of the Arch from our Crowne Plaza window. Spectacular.
I've written about perspective before and it is worthwhile to explore all aspects of one's writing, one's projects, or an Arch. I imagine the planning meeting -architects with detailed statues, buildings, etc. And then, Eero Saarinen probably pulled out a napkin with his vision of an arch made out of that newfangled material - stainless steel. A gasp, and then applause. Everyone crumples up their drawings. Simple, yet brilliant.
