van Berkel in Winter

The two Burnham Centennial pavilions closed to the public October 31st. The Hadid, the last to arrive - six weeks late - was the first to go, all traces now removed. The more angular steel frame of the van Berkel, stripped of its glossy white melting ice cream scoops, endures, long enough to become, covered in the first snow of the season, the lovely geometric sculpture you see here.

May be liking the geometric sculpture much more than the melting ice cream scoop version.
