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.
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.
Another one of those curvaceous front gable/dormers.
A rather precipitous situation.
A more contemporary building with a fun mix of elements.
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.
A garage-shop-deck with a view.
Stately houses, stately mountain.
The sun's shallow angle against the wall augments its texture nicely.
This succulent (a cactus?) looks like it's just perched on the window sill and is ready to hop away.
A slightly surreal façade with what looks like a time-out bench and a duct to nowhere.
Just one of those neighboring-roofs-creating-a-full-covering type deals.
Who needs Google Maps?
Another cool glazing-behind-timbers gable.
Blocks and church.
