Civil Courts Building, Revisited


Chicago, Hyde Park, Union Station and Wainwright Building 057

The Civil Courts Building is one of my favorite buildings in downtown St. Louis, but it is so often viewed from straight down the Gateway Mall.  I like seeing it from amongst the buildings of downtown.

      Yes, wrote a paper on it back in Junior High–the Civil Courts is derived from its design.

        There are so many tries at the Mausoleum design around the country, built — I think — at more or less the same time. I’ve wondered about that. I can’t say that I’m terribly fond of ours, though I do like it better than the LA City Hall, for example.
