FROM SPACE IT CAME

This is a building that resides at one of the busiest intersections in the city. It has had many different names over the years. I'm not sure what it is called today. Perhaps you may know of a good name for it. The shape and the metal add-ons make it rather unusual. Sort of a Modern Deco meets L.A. Contemporary.  To get a better feel for the building, you may want to click the photo. Regardless, I hope it will prove to be a suitable addition to SKYWATCH FRIDAY.

  1. For some reason it reminds me of a high-tech version of the Roman coliseum. :-)

  5. That's quite the bank, but I'm not sure I'd deposit money there. It might fly away.

  8. If you look at the enlarged image, this building looks like an elaborate springy seat.
    Not bad anyway, I kind of like it against the blue sky.
