"...designed as a monolithic concrete structure."Hmm....I would have expected a bit more of a description than that. No wonder there were no authors listed for the work. Although I could find no other specific references after due diligence in searching, I did some speculation and decided to go out on a limb here with my own assessment. I trust the folks over at MissPres to correct my efforts, and as always, appreciate the tutoring.
- curving forms and long horizontal lines
- simple metal railings
- flat roof
- subdued colors
- smooth finish, of materials such as concrete or stucco
- curved canopies
- aluminum frames in windows and doors
- devoid of, or simple, ornamentation
The building currently houses the New Albany Police Department.
One of two pieces of ornamentation: The state seal.
These steps lead down and under the simple metal railing you can see just inside the entrance to the stairway. There is a brief landing, and then the steps turn and open onto a flat area along the side of the building. The building opens onto the street at this level, but the ground level is actually down at the bottom of those stairs, and parking is in the back.
Up next, the Union County Courthouse.
