Monumental Poetry

On our recent trip to San Diego, we trekked through the resort community of La Jolla via e-bikes to check out Louis Kahn's timeless masterpiece, Salk Institute. A perfect fusion of art and science, the compound is composed of reinforced concrete and travertine structures bisected by a stream of water- with the Pacific Ocean in its vista. Fear and awe-inspiring, we were hushed by its sublimity.
