Donut Stop 45th

Donut Stop, I-27 and 45th Avenue, Amarillo, Texas 2010


Inspired by mid-twentieth century American roadside architecture such as diners and coffee shops, the new Donut Stop, situated directly adjacent to a major freeway, emphasizes movement through its shape. Its soaring cantilevered roof and horizontal reveals lend the building a dynamic shape. On another level, and in a more sublime sense, the building was conceived as carved from the forces of nature such as wind, water and ice. More at Arch Daily.
