Tomochichi Federal Building Bell Tower

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 18 March 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

One particularly imposing feature of the Tomochichi Federal Building is a 150-foot marble bell tower rising from the north center of the original 1899 building. The tower is square in plan with two levels of open loggias near the top. These loggias are arcaded with colored marble disks above the architrave on the first level, and arched openings with a bracketed balcony on the second.

Tomochichi, it's a funny name for us Japanese people.
Tomo means friend or attendant. Chichi has two different meanings. Father and Milk.
The father of a friend or the breasts of a friend ?
Anyway, the building is beautifully decorated.

the blue sky kissed with just a few clouds makes a wonderful background for this section of the courthouse. The veining in the marble shows up nicely and the architectural details are well presented.
