Boat Building

This is a curved, two-sided building, called locally "the boat building."  The two surfaces meet at the right of the building in the top photograph and again on the riverfront side (not shown).  To understand the shape, visualize a lens.  The second photograph gives a better view of the way the two sides meet.

 It was completed in 1961 for Phoenix Insurance Company, still the building's main tenant.

I like it! I bet you can get some great reflection shots there too!

Looks as if it was very avant-garde for its time.
