The architect who designed the building (an expert in the field of chaos perspective) was in fact experimenting with non-Euclidean structural geometria, and the framework is not entirely contained within the three dimensions we know. Part of what makes this work is the morphic resonance of bare concrete. The carefully arranged metal plates covering the concrete in some regions act as a dimensional Faraday cage, containing and redirecting the ley flow, but paint on the concrete would just ruin the whole effect. In fact the main reason that maintenance is so strict about vandalism on this particular building is that too much paint on the walls would overload the perspective circuitry, disrupting the foundations and possibly causing the whole structure to collapse! --["Users/BarnabasTruman"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Social Sciences and Humanities Buildinghttp://daviswiki.org/Social_Sciences_and_Humanities_Building2011-05-16 08:23:07BruceLeungComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Social Sciences and Humanities Building<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 93: </td> <td> Line 93: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-05-16 09:23:07'' [[nbsp]] Have anyone ever wondered why some exterior part of the building has the glossy silver plates while some are just ugly concrete not even painted?( even inside social science lecture hall?) is it because it is unfinished or something due to budget problems?

[[BR]][[BR]]It is commonly refered to as the ["Death Star"] by students, since it is such a maze (and also for the glassed-in catwalk between the two center wings which is just begging for a lightsaber dual...) [[BR]][[BR]]Predock's design philosophy is very concerned with how the structure interacts with its surroundings. He has called his style "abstract landscape"; thus he blends the structure in with the surrounding landscape [http://www.archpedia.com/Architects/Antoine-Predock.html footnote]. [[BR]][[BR]]Supposedly, if you were to fly over the building, it looks like a topographic map of California. However, the resemblance is loose at best, as can be seen from this aerial photo (rotated for clarity--North is actually to the left). [[BR]][[BR]]The building's two center wings are set at angles that slope upward, simulating the geological uplift that formed the western Coast Range and Sacramento Valley. Their silver color also echoes the granite of the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. [[BR]][[BR]]Also, the curve of the walkway which winds through the bottom level of the structure is reminiscent of the many rivers which wind through Northern California. In the original design, the plants on the bottom level were to be tomatoes and other local natives, like California bunchgrass. But the extreme heat from the reflective steel proved too much for some of them.||</span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 8: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- [[BR]]<br> - [[BR]]<br> - attachment:crackvw.jpg<br> - [[BR]](Picture taken by ["BradCuppy"].)<br> - [[Thumbnail(deathshadow.jpg, right, 250, "photo by ["DanFisher"]")]]<br> - [[BR]]<br> - [[BR]]<br> - Drunken students often make their way to the top of the west tower late at night, as the tower commands a view of most of the bits of ["Campus" campus] that are worth looking at.
