Travelers Tower


Hartford's Travelers Tower is dressed in scaffolding as a multi-year renovation continues.

If things work as planned, I arrive back in the USA today.  Fresh American photos begin soon.
But, posts that I think are interesting are scheduled.  Thank you for your visits.

Here is the headquarters of Leninergo, the electric company in St. Petersburg.
In Moscow and St. Petersburg, when a major building is being renovated, they
cover the work with a building-sized canvas painted to show the building when completed.



Some might argue that open versus closed is an apt metaphor.

That is quite a network of scaffolding around that building. It has its own sort of beauty to it.
Safe travels!

The scaffolding does make for interesting patterns!

I like the idea of the scaffolding being covered with canvas!

Randy said...

I agree with Karl.

Still jacket weather in St. Petersburg in June. Something I'd expect in Anchorage. I suppose the latitude isn't too different.

Kate said...

The canvas doesn't seem to have a practical purpose, and I wonder why that method is used, although it satisfies curiosity.

The skyline and the streetlamp in the second shot are interesting balance points. And it looks as if the northern overcast didn't discourage people from hanging out.
