Newport Balboa Savings and Bank, Newport Beach, CA, USA (1954, expanded 1960)

What is interesting about this bank building, apart from its design, is that it has a dock for boaters to stop and do some banking.

Apparently the design has been dulled down and parts of the facade were removed.

Palacio Municipal, Guatemala City (1950s, not sure about the exact year).

I love how the city hall looked back in the day.



Today... those f*cking curtains ruin it... it's dirty... the antennas... And I know trees are good, but I hate the trees in front of it...

Many buildings with transparent glass usually get black or dark grey blinds so that they don't distract from the design. Black window frames also make a design look cleaner since all those spindly posts aren't as visible.
