From this picture I can see the movement from Art Deco to Bauhaus but I don’t think it has aged well.
I’ve always found it quite pleasing on that site. Glad to know it’s not going anywhere.
I did not know the history of this building: age, design intent or landmark status. I guess one could say this building is an example of the early works of ‘modernist’ architecture; as this was not designed in the traditonal or classical styles which was the predominant mode of architecture at the time.
It is sort of a plain looking building (except for the mosaic in front) and one would not expect a landmark status: but that historical significance really makes the case. I see 240 CPS with a new found level of appreciation.
