Many a child’s fable includes winding roads that lead to mysterious places. From Alice in Wonderland’s figurative tumble to the Wizard of Oz’s yellow brick road, imaginary tales of dreams and experiences typically come in the form of wild adventures on circular roads, dangerous bends, and unexpected twists and turns. A contemporary urban tale set in an American city might just include this building. And I can’t help but believe that in the back of the architect’s mind lies a child permanently enraptured by such a tale. (I am equally sure, however, he would never disclose such a humorous, long suppressed inspiration.) When I look at this building, my imagination begins to soar, and I become lost in its winding soul.
