It's in the Details

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 19 March 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Tomochichi Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse's exterior ornamentation, both that executed in marble on the original portion of the building and the terra-cotta detailing on the extension, is rich and varied. Motifs relating to nature—including flowers, animals, and fruit-are incorporated into the frieze (the carved band below the eaves) alternating with medallions of variously colored marble. Similar motifs are repeated above certain windows and at the bases of the main entrance arches. I was impressed with the dentils, brackets, detailed motifs and medallions which I highlight here.
