the starr building

1For my 1ne post today, i’m going with The Starr Building in Austin, TX. I love the colors and the stainless steel type above the front door:2It is currently home to McGarrah Jessee, an advertising firm that has been in the building since 2010. In 2009, the company began restoration of the historic Starr Building (pictured), one of the exemplars of mid-century modern architecture in the state of Texas. The Starr, which features a mural by twentieth-century artist Seymour Fogel and interior design by international style architect Florence Knoll, became the firm’s new home in November 2010 (Wikipedia).3 4See any beautiful type in your city? Take a picture and tweet it to me @nikki_vz or email me nikkivillagomez@gmail.com. Happy weekend! Back at it on Monday!
