I find to be one of the most difficult buildings to photograph well. As I’ve indicated previously, I find the Guthrie to be a rather uninspiring, a dark blob on the riverfront – not at all like the other Nouvel buildings I know, with their intricate construction and sense of movement (for example, the Arab Institute and Quai Branly in Paris).
I don’t actually hate the building, but I am having trouble shooting the whole building in a way I find interesting (and have the right lenses for – I need my ultra-wide and it isn’t in my bag today) so I look to the building’s details for inspiration.
I probably should go inside (the interior spaces are fascinating), but it is a beautiful spring day so I turn my attention to the nearby mill ruins.
This is such a wonderful part of the city – it would be fun to live here. I wonder how much it would cost to buy one of these condos?
I bet I could even learn to love the Guthrie if I lived here!
