undulation of form.

in my history of architecture, interiors, and furniture class we just studied the baroque period. i have been struck by borromini and his idea of undulation of form, where the buildings look like they are moving. it is beautiful and now i see it in some of my favorite buildings.
here are some of his beautiful designs...
THE GETTY in l.a. has some beautiful uses of undulation of form. (and, i am slightly obsessed with southern california these days, so of course it would be on my mind.)

isn't the view spectacular?
