‘Hypnotic Building’

A rare building in the densely packed downtown Houston, shows on its interesting, saturated facade some of its inner workings. This late-modernist structure is in its 30s, having been built in 1981. The hypnotic lines roughly match some of the elevator shafts from inside the building, moving office workers and lawyers around since infancy. Adding to the mesmeric feeling to this architecture are the intense black and white lines, focusing on glass and aluminum in a city known for oil or concrete.
