The Jamesburg Earth Station is a massive satellite receiver in a remote valley in California. It played a central role in satellite communications for three decades, but had been forgotten until the current owner put it up for sale, promoting it as a great place to spend the apocalypse.
Begs the question of whether the building’s accentuated forms were added on over time with successive renovations, or if the building’s form was intentionally designed to segment individual structures in relation to the whole?

It would be a shame if anything happened to it and the world lost such a unique building.
This design uses interesting shadow play to create interest within the space – also dappled light. I would like to create a similar effect within my space.
The slight twist and the color change make this a cool building to look at. The slight pink fade into yellow draws ones eyes to it.
The different lengths of the floors sticking out along with the simple design makes it look like tide pools reminds me of the fun memories i had as a child at the beach.
