I have a love of all architecture but especially art deco and mid-century modern.
Is this an Art Deco structure? I say Art Deco because of the lines that are incorporated. I also believe it to be Art Deco more so because the glass block that is used, which was very popular at that time. This building resembles the New York Telephone Building to me. I absolutely love the rustication on the front facade of this structure. Growing up in Marion, I have been to this building many times blind to the beauty and history of it as a whole. What are your thoughts?-Sarah
While there are elements that seem Streamline Moderne, I would lean more toward International Style or Mid-Century Modern based on the research I've done.
