I need to know

By saltireblue    
Detail from Oslo Uni's new Informatics building. Apparantly Informatics means Informations Science.
Anyway, this is an uncovered fire escape within the structure of the building. Fatal in winter when it is minus 10c and ice covered.....but design is the most important, n'est pas?
Two variations and V3 shows more of the facade.
V4 shows the area round the building....not a bad place to have to study...

Thanks as always for your comments, and most importantly, thanks for bothering.

Having real problems choosing between V1 and V2 so they'll have to share my vote.

I'm drawn to version 2 as the colour works so well.

What an amazing building - v1 or v2 - not sure which; maybe a slight preference for the steely blue.

After much flicking between V1 and V2........V1 for me - the tones in the metal are superb, and the mono highlights the slightly abstract nature of the image

Fantastic looking place - very futuristic! Love all that shiney metal - V2 is my fav, but only just over V1.

Happy Birthday x

V1 for me, Malc - it is the most "pure"! This goes well with Daniel's elevator photos too. This is quite striking but I was alarmed by what you said about it being so dangerous in winter.

It's curious how the balance shifts between V1 & V2. In theory I want b&w here, but in V2 the areas of mesh become much more striking, and I rather like them. V2 by a whisker.

V1 is the purest but the touch of blue 'humanises' the structure; whether that is necessarily a good thing, however .........
V4 - walking on water recommended Smile
Many happy returns, Malc; don't wear the pressies out before tomorrow!

Very interesting architecture, Malc - the mono conversion works good in V1 - I like the texture from the side of the building and the staircase design - a very fine capture , Malc

A fine piece of modern architecture, Malc Smile The mono V1's my fave, though like how that person in V4 is walking on the water alongside the building... Wink
Seems like from reading the above that it's your birthday, so Many Happy Returns! Wink

The mono conversion works so well her, Malc: stark crisp outlines, curves and angles.......and when it comes to V about walking on water.
30 Sep 2011 6:57PM
I need to know what you need to know Malc ? but I know that I like this image Smile
