"The building that got my attention is a small apartment building in a quiet residential road of the Polando district of Mexico City. The main structure is of reinforced concrete, but what makes it unique is the use of 7,900 blown green glass spheres on the façade and inside the building. " - Building by Hierve-Diseñería
The Chicago Federal Building, Chicago, IL. The Chicago Federal Building was a place of mammoth proportions with a rotunda larger than that of Washington, DC's Capital Building. It stood for sixty years, from its completion in 1905 to its quiet demolition in 1965. It was replaced with Mies van der Rohe's modernist Kluczynski Federal Building—a far cry from the Beaux Arts extravagance of this lost treasure.
