YES! THIS! except in my case it's the walk from the train station to work. i exit the station and go just a little out of my way to cut through the plaza of the large art center complex. i like being the only human moving amongst the sculptures so early in the morning. and the exterior walls are the cleanest, purest white i've ever seen exposed to the elements. somehow they resist stains, even when it's windy and wet and for all practical purposes they should show at least some smudges of dirt.



then i cross the street and amble through the promenade of this lovely bit of corporate architecture:



the detailing is repeated throughout every corner and every square inch of its construction, and on breezy days the wind whips through the covered walkway so fast that your breath is snatched right from your throat.

it's the best part of the day.
