My friend Grace gave me this amazing advice, to take the architectural tour at the Salk Institute. Amazing experience!

The Salk Institute was established in the 1960s by Jonas Salk, M.D., the developer of the polio vaccine. His goal was to establish an institute that would explore questions about the basic principles of life. He wanted to make it possible for biologists and others to work together in a collaborative environment that would encourage them to consider the wider implications of their discoveries for the future of humanity.

In December 1959, Salk and architect  began a unique partnership to design such a facility. Salk summarized his aesthetic objectives by telling the architect to “create a facility worthy of a visit by Picasso.” Kahn, who was a devoted artist before he became an architect, was able to respond to this challenge.

Ellen Zimmerman was our tour guide and she made sure we had an extremely interesting experience. I went with my father so he shot my outfit post. I think he is becoming an expert…

  1. Love the visual effects of the bulding with a very industrial vibe on a large scale with good balance and proportions, it makes up for a really nice shot of architecture and design. You my dear Nina on the other hand got the perfect outfit, perfect styling for the perfect backdrop. I love it and your bag just adds that extra extra yummi punch. Great post.
