I have been staring at this picture for the past couple of days. The location is at the entrance of the Geisel Library at UCSD. It's an intallation by John Baldessari called READ/WRITE/THINK/DREAM (2001). Colored panes of glass encase a lobby. As you enter through the automatic doors, the colors overlap to temporarily form new colors (yellow + blue = green). I can imagine myself escaping from the California sun and settling down here for some good people watching. This is a perfect spot for it, too, because local artist Roy McMakin has a pair of eucalyptus benches in the lobby to sit on. Read more here.

This is an exterior shot of Geisel Library (named in honor after Dr. Seuss and wife Audrey). Wow - talk about a brutalist masterpiece!
