Greatest spot in the city for cooking up some hot dogs. And would you kill for that grill?
Wright's Marin County Hall of Justice, San Rafael, California (1959)
A peak inside what will become the main concourse.
This is during halftime.
Those little oval additions are positively laughable!
Wrigley Field viewed while approaching on foot from the northwest
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!
June 29,1936 - May 17, 2011
7:52 PM It's nearing peak, and covering the stands behind third base.

TCF Bank Stadium (click to enlarge)
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).
Met Stadium on May 17, 1975 (Twins vs. Brewers featuring Hank Aaron)
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!
Some fun field facts. (Click to enlarge.)
The Carew gate ticket windows have grown a small awning.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Pawlenty makes it official!
This isn't a very good picture, but it is the current view of the inside of a suite.
That's Jacque Jones looking up in awe at the Great Greenness.
Flowers. Real flowers.
Installation in action (Home Plate Box)
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
This maze of scaffolding is something you'll probably never see again.
You are forgiven for wondering whether architect Tom Oslund is, in fact, a visitor from the future.
Ready for action.
