"A symbol of the city" Transamerica Pyramid Center Tip by jglsongs

  San Francisco and the Transamerica Pyramid
by jglsongs

The Transamerica Pyramid is one of the symbols of San Francisco. Completed in 1972, the building itself was unique to the era, but the lobby/entrance is typical 1970s architecture which doesn't stand the test of time. In fact, if you're on street level going into the building, you would never know how interesting the building is above the first concrete level.

The pyramid is best seen from a distance, to appreciate the beauty and grace of the building.
