Oberlin College in Ohio, my alma mater, includes a Conservatory of Music, whose new home by architect Minoru Yamasaki was completed a couple of years before I arrived in 1965.  Geoffrey Blodgett wrote that "its chief virtue is its glistening beauty as a thing-in-itself, viewed from a distance on a sunny day.  Its repetitive white rhythms, a characteristic Yamasaki blend of modern Gothic and classical allusions, went with nothing else in Oberlin."  The architcet then went on to design the World Trade Center in New York City.

In this view, taken on the morning of May 24, 2008, we're standing at the edge of the koi pond in the Japanese garden, looking west toward Talcott.  On the left is Warner Concert Hall; on the right, Bibbins Hall, the main Conservatory classroom building.
