Space-age Office Building

Early to pick someone up from the airport a few weeks ago, I wandered about the surrounding industrial area for a bit and came across this wonderful example of space-age architecture. Probably constructed in the 60s or 70s, its location by the airport is perfect! I have been unable to find any info on the architects but will keep trying. I love it!

Kind of reminds me of a flying saucer. Are you sure it's a building? :))

I love it, too. Reminds me of some church buildings that were constructed in the 60s and 70s.

Thanks for your nice welcome back - but it's only sort of a half back. :-)

Your blog is just super! I really like the clean lines. The photos are excellent and it's so easy to read and to navigate. Kudos on a job well done1

Wow - totally cool. Would love to know who and what it was designed for i.e. the name of the company and if the design represents what they do.

This is wonderful! Good luck finding info on it - and remember to let us know.

Interesting style, much better than many that I have seen from that period.

A local college has a cafeteria that looks like this but much bigger... they call it the UFO.

Deb said it first, but it's what hit me also, Ground Control to Major Tom! Great find.

Pretty interesting, agreed. It has sixties written all over it.

I would love to have an office in that upper area. Must be nice with all the windows. :)

I love it too and it looks like it has been maintained well.

That's different.

I've seen many similar houses in Sao Paulo, but this one seems huge!
And I'm sure the view is great. ;-)

JM said...

It definitely looks like having been built some decades ago and it's great!

Very 'Close Encounters of the third king' Pat, must be great to have 'all round' views!

NixBlog said...

Yes, it is wonderful, Pat. I wonder what it's like inside...

Like other commenters, I'm expecting this to take off at any moment.
