California Bridges - Oakland Stack (2)

Another photo of the Stack. These interchanges may not be art, but I enjoy the sense of freedom and spaciousness of these long curved connectors. I like the white steel casings like band-aids on some of the gray concrete columns. I even like the horizontal sign structure in the middle of this photo.

Note the nice job of designing the green landscapes around the structures by Caltrans' landscape architects. These 1960s era interchanges express a modern aesthetic with their trim lines, parabolic curves, and effective use of light and shadow.
