Vancouver Bell Phone Exchange Building
Last weekend we went to Vancouver and saw the historic 1935 Vancouver Bell Phone Exchange building.
I was particularly drawn to the tile work, which reminded me of the
Arizona Biltmore Hotel
, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
I liked the way the tiles stacked together and the brick patterns. There were some specialty bricks which made vertical channels in the building.
Over the doorway, they placed a Bell Telephone Logo.
I think Eugene used to have buildings with character like this before urban renewal efforts replaced them with American Brutalism concrete and glass cubes.
