View From the Top.
The view from the top can make you feel small. It can make you feel powerful. Your experience is your perception. Throw in elevation and you view becomes exaggerated or more clear. Go 18 stories higher than where you stand now, a city sunset as the backdrop. Your drink is perfect and refreshing. Muddled orange, St. Germaine, and Gin. Elder flower and citrus shaken together to create a sweetness just right to leave an essence after each sip. Your standing on top of a manmade jungle. The city is not concrete and pollution, it is a living and breathing system. A portrait of growth and enterprise. People, art, and designed space existing together. You had forgotten about all these elaborate elements until you saw you city as a portrait from the top of this very rooftop bar. Was your appreciation misplaced or has this view changed your understanding? Architects are artist working with larger then life elements. Not a paintbrush and canvas. Metal building blocks and an entire city to incorporate. They are not building an enclosure they are building a feeling. Now you realize their intentions standing looking out in the open air with this birds eye view.
