May 27: Sent – around the village

Yet more Sent, heading west again.

Another modernist house, on a bit overprominent of a site in terms of harmonizing with the adjacent built environment. I do however like a number of the details, such as the tapered-recess horizontal window similar to old-school Engadin windows.

6362

Ruins of the medieval Baselgia San Peder.

This is the school, I'm guessing. I like its cascade of levels and how it nestles into the slope, plus those great boulders.

6371

Another one of those curvaceous front gable/dormers.

6372

High shadows.

6375

A rather precipitous situation.

6378

A more contemporary building with a fun mix of elements.

6382

What a goofball of a building! The ladders make it look to me like a character with an overwide toothy smile, like Wallace. But I still quite like its proportions and the materials it's composed of.

This house got in the way of the sidewalk and the road.

6386

A garage-shop-deck with a view.

6387

Stately houses, stately mountain.

6388

The sun's shallow angle against the wall augments its texture nicely.

6394

This succulent (a cactus?) looks like it's just perched on the window sill and is ready to hop away.

6401

A slightly surreal façade with what looks like a time-out bench and a duct to nowhere.

6403

Just one of those neighboring-roofs-creating-a-full-covering type deals.

6407

Who needs Google Maps?

6409

Another cool glazing-behind-timbers gable.

6416

Blocks and church.

Stripey!

Stripier!
