I’m just in love with the beautiful Bhutan-inspired architecture on my university campus! We fondly call our campus Bhutan on the Border.
I was teaching in the classroom building on campus on a particularly stormy night, and the orange of the lights and the blue of the storms caught my eye.
The Franklin mountains do make it magical in the big sky country that El Paso, Texas is.
The lights from the classrooms accentuate the color in the sky from the thunderstorms – it turned out to be a hailstorm later that night.
The desert garden in the backyard of the classrooms assumed their own colors in response to the thunderstorm threat in the skies.
Bhutanese architecture on campus is going retro – the new buildings on campus now have beautiful blue and orange and red trims that give it a retro look.
The colors in the mosaic panels are breathtaking – they blend well not only to represent Bhutan but I think also Mexico (have you seen the colors in Mexican-styled homes?)
Here’s the new Health Sciences Building and the lawn in front of it – the lawn is a great resting place for a quick afternoon nap or for meeting friends opposite the library and drinking a cuppa coffee. Interesting how all trees point to Mexico.
I’ll leave you with a picture I took on my iPhone one night after class that I think nicely captures the Bhutanese style architecture on campus, and the big sky country that El Paso, Texas is with its breathtaking sunsets.
