Wow, this is really beautiful building. It reminds me to some socialist architecture from the former USSR countries.

I believe this is suitable for this thread - The Post Office & Federal Building in downtown Fargo (USA), completed in 1970

Also, you should check this group on Flickr about Mid-century architecture

I'd say 1940-1965 is the time span this thread considers roughly?!

From 1945-1975, since postmodernism really starts mostly around 1973-5, with a few exceptions. Also to account for buildings designed in the 60s that took longer to build.
