Best Soffit

Seay Psychology Building at UT

We could wax on about so many facets of the design of this grand new addition to the UT campus. But for our purposes here, we'd like to focus on one element that keeps our necks craned and our gaze heavenward. The building's soffit -- the underpinning of awning that can be seen from underneath -- is a gorgeous tile-patterned explosion of red, turquoise, and orange that can be seen from blocks away. If you can, try to catch a glimpse as the sun sets toward the Drag end of Dean Keeton; the sight is positively electric.
