PoMo ruins everything: architecture edition

Recommended Posts

Let me guess. Lots of bare concrete, exposed I-beams and H-vac systems, shitty artwork and dead space for no reason and a floor plan that leaves the user lost and wondering where the elevators and bathrooms are hidden.

Got it in one. It also has a really strange bare concrete section (which you can see in the photo) which makes the building look like it was plonked on top of a fortress.

 

Also, it's blocking the view from our office.

Exactly like my old office.

Seattle has the old Pacific Medical Building (originally the U.S. Marine Hospital) on Beacon Hill

 

During the first part of World War 2, my grandfather was assigned to an anti-aircraft battalion at a nearby park. During practice, while firing blank rounds, his loader accidentally slipped a live round into a 40mm Bofors and he fired a round over this same building.

 

As my uncle said, there was a reason why Grandpa Harry made corporal three times when serving in the Army.
