"Cold as stone" Architecture Tip by goingsolo

Architecture, San Francisco: 26 reviews and 52 photos


San Francisco is not as sculpture intensive as, say, Chicago, where various atristic structures are scattered throughout the city like hidden treasures. But it does contain its fair share of impressive forms. The Bank America Building, located in Union Square,is an impressive sight in itself, if for no other reason than the fact that a towering structure in a city prone to earthquakes appears to be tempting fate. Outside the Bank of America building you'll find this large oddly shaped block. It is designed to resemble a bankers heart, cold as stone. Or so we were told.
