Humble Building

Recommended Posts

Have the plans to 'modernize' this building been scrapped?
I certainly hope so.

This building is not only a thing of beauty, in my opinion; it also is a symbol of architectural marvel with regards to functionality. There was certainly nothing humble about the cost it ran, though.

That picture makes it look like the architectural equivalent of pinhead. :lol: I like it though because I like that type of retro look. They shouldn't change it.

Architect for the Humble Building was Welton Becket and Associates, who also designed the iconic Capitol Records tower in Los Angeles. It was completed in 1956. You might say there are a few similarities...
