My last day at Fort Mason doing Rigoletto on Sunday, I wanted to be sure to catch some of the very marine textures of the piers and what for me, seemed quite the juxtaposition implied by the Cowell Theater. The theater sits at the very end of one of the piers, inside of course, but surrounded on all sides by the historic center of embarkation, the rough waters of the bay and the rugged materials of the marina landscape.

And then the old-fashioned detailing of that button. Something about that is very satisfying, hard to say why.
