Sushi à la Corb

I walk by a 7-Eleven everyday and recently I notice the store is promoting a NT$39 sushi roll for breakfast. The poster on the store window shows a sushi roll that is based on a progressive transformation of a rectangle into an ellipse.

I can't help but be reminded of Le Corbusier's St-Pierre at Firminy-Vert. The church was designed in the 60's and completed in 2006. The building's main volume is based on a transformation of a square plan into a hollow conic shell.

  3. In looking at the picture, I'm reminded that you haven't seen Joel's renovated house's getting close to being completed, and we went on a buying spree at Cassina (20% off on all LC furniture).
