Description Untitled (Courtyard at Raychem Headquarters), c. 1966-1975. Silver gelatin photograph shows a courtyard between buildings at Raychem Corporation Headquarters in Menlo Park, California. The loggia attached to buildings at front, left, and right casts shadows on the ground, with a rectangle of sunlight centered on the lower margin of the image. A bench and a small landscaped area appear in the foreground at lower right. Three concrete steps lead from the main walkway down to a courtyard paved with brick that is landscaped with young trees and benches at center left. Behind the courtyard is a one-story building with rectangular brick columns, large windows, and a shingled roof.
This image is from a set of photographs originally stored in a black plastic Raychem binder with the early "bug" logo on the front. (2016.015.001.18-.44)
