Artist's Description

The W. 9th Street dominating force is the rear wall of Landmark Office Towers, connected underground to the Cleveland Union Terminal Complex. The simple, yet striking, however somewhat neglected facade still harkens one back to the golden age of that architectural style. Erected in 1930, the highly sought after office space is among the most sacred and vied after real estate in the city. The deep recessed insets that start halfway up the towers (as it is actually a cleverly linked group of three different office towers), give it an immediate unique and readily identifiable bulk to the skyline. Not overly noticeable in this photograph are the numerous carvings and forms that decorate the many floors. The whole idea of Art Deco was a elegant gaudiness and decidedly sophisticated presence that would lead the eye to a multitude of different visual effects from several unlike angles.
