Corner View, 50 United Nations Plaza
Corner View, 50 United Nations Plaza. San Francisco, California. August 5, 2012. © Copyright 2012 G Dan Mitchell - all rights reserved.
The curved architecture of the corner of the building at 50 United Nations Plaza, San Francisco.
This building is located in the Civic Center area of San Francisco. To the east of City Hall - the opposite side from the Opera House, a place with which I am more familiar - is a large plaza, and beyond that as you might walk toward Market Street you may pass by this building, with its classic architecture.
I'm not familiar with the history of the building, though I assume that it might be in some way related to the United Nations Plaza. The building, which occupies most of a block, is currently being refurbished, and portions at the far end of the building are fenced off. This corner, with its columns and curving shape, seems quite formal, especially when juxtaposed with the rest of the City life in this particular area.
