Stanford University: A fusion of Roman and Contemporary styles

Welcome to Stanford in Palo Alto, California

There is no glamor at the beginning, by the parking lots
Then it shines, in a subtle way... once you are inside.

Stanford University made me recall the Romans an their architecture,
shaped by detailed arcs and long corridors.

But it also made me get a little bit nostalgic about Mexican haciendas
and grudged up weird memories about Mexican soap operas

When you are there, you feel surrounded by an harmonious relationship
between Shape and Color.

You experienced the good taste, even while facing the Graphic Art of
the Cafeteria.

Look at the combination of the Roman arcs and the contemporary windows
Be a witness of how these two different styles... get along well
