I spotted this one from the car as Debbie was driving us somewhere. It's a building I've known about for over a year, but didn't know the location. I recognized it immediately from seeing it in a photograph.

The neighborhood has gotten a bit sketchy (notice they have a barbed wire fence around their parking area), but I had to get photos of this important building.

Milo S. Ketchum, Jr. was an engineer and thin concrete shell innovator. In 1953, he needed a larger office for his engineering firm Ketchum, Konkel & Hasting. This building was Ketchum's design (I suspect he may have worked with architect Thomas E. Moore but have not confirmed this). The tall north windows allowed plenty of natural light, without shadows or glare, for drafting. I was very pleased to see that another architectural-construction firm now uses this building.
