Pill Hill blue cubes--Weekend Reflections

One of the great things about CDP is that it makes you really look at your surroundings.  I've been on Pill Hill a gazillion times but somehow never registered this blue glass hospital until a few weeks ago.  It is the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center on 30th St.  I don't know when it was built or who designed it---but whether or not you like it, it gets your attention.  (Sooner or later).  Pill Hill is a real hill between Broadway and Telegraph that has been home to a hospital, doctors' offices, and pharmacies since forever.  For other Weekend Reflections, click here.

  2. An enormous amount of glass in well ordered arrays. Great reflective power.

    PS Have you had a look at it in monochrome?

  6. I like the building, it's very geometric
    it seems that the buildings reflected in it are older which makes for a wonderful contrast

  7. What a great subject! The reflections are beautiful, and I love the composition. Funny how you can see something every day and not notice it. Then when you do, it's like "BAM"! Kathy

  8. "Pill Hill" I'm still laughing. Not at the fabulous photo but at the name!

  9. Nice shot - and yes one of the "most funnest" things about CDP is the "make you look" aspect! (All of my brothers were born on Pill Hill, I was born at Alta Bates in Berkeley so it is interesting to see that they have "expanded".)

  12. «Louis» doesn't remember when this building was built, either.

    Excellent choice for Weekend Reflections.
