Clinton Presidential Library

I could have sworn I already had a topic over here in the photo forum going. I've taken a few pics here in the past. Although this was one of the few times I've gotten to take some when the weather wasn't too bad. Maybe I'll have to go back and find some of my older pics if there is any interest. Anyway took these last weekend. I stopped in Little Rock to take a few pics on my way through. This is becoming a pretty hot spot in the city for development. I really liked being able to get some interesting cloud reflections in some of the pics.

I'm sure it must've cost a fortune to build, but there's something about the design

that's a little too reminiscent of a single-wide on stilts :D

Nevertheless, those are good photos, especially the one with the skyline in the background.

I think it's beautiful, but I admit it reminds me of when I drive from Atlanta to Chattanooga. Off the freeway just south of the Tennessee line is a trailer park high up on a bluff. There is one trailer (single wide) that juts out over the edge of the bluff and is held up by a long line of concrete blocks.

:lol: Yeah I've heard a number of people in Arkansas refer to it being like a trailer. Although once I actually stopped by to see it and not simply drive by it I didn't think so. But even if people aren't too happy about the way it looks in Little Rock I think people have to appreciate what it's done for the city. It's certainly been a big boost for that area of the city. But anyway thanks for the comments.

Nice Pics of the Presidential Library.

I'm very behind as far as viewing threads in the Photos section, but I had to respond to this. I'm not a Clinton fan by any definition, but I find Presidential Libraries to be very nice monuments, and I hope to someday visit this particular one.

Thanks.

This one is rather easy to get to if you're in Little Rock. You can also see it pretty well just off I-30.

I guess I've never looked for it. I've been through L.R. so many times on I-30 since it's been built, but never seen it. But then again, I'm ususally driving and focused on the road. My wife probably wouldn't even know what to look for, so I'm sure we've missed it many times.

Yeah if you're focused on the road or more likely to be in the fast lane you may not have seen it. It's to the east of I-30 just before you get to the river. One of these days I'll go by and actually try going inside for a change.

wow what a pretty structure!

I think so too. Although I don't think a lot of people around the area particularly like it though.

It looks like I missed this thread!

Very nice photos of a nicely designed structure, Rod! I was in Little Rock last summer, but I completely forgot about the Clinton Library. One of these days I'm gonna have to get back up to Little Rock and check it out.

Thanks. Yeah I still need to go inside some time. But I've been by at odd times or opted to go around the city and take pics instead. I've mainly been hitting Little Rock on my drive back to Fayetteville.

It's funny it never occurred to the world famous New York architect that designed it as a symbol of Clinton's "Bridge to the 21st Century" mantra but every Southerner looks at it and thinks this:

Yeah, I've heard the triler park home on stilts analogy, I don't think it's a terrible looking structure. I do sort of chuckle when I see it though.

Yeah I've certainly heard the analogy used as well. To be honest though, I think it's a pretty interesting building. I guess if it was shaped a little differently then people would like it better perhaps.

:rofl: Exactly.

Oh no, really, it's great.

Great pictures, I really like the design of that building. Some people don't like the shape, but I really do.
