On the trip to Richmond we visited some areas we had not seen in a while. It is a very Southern town, but a lot of redevolopment is going on in many areas. We usually see the old colonial homes with the live oaks and crepe myrtles trees.
We found this interesting building off Broad Street.
This is the Markel Building, built in 1962. Richmond native architect Haig Jamgochain was inspired by a bake potato wraped in foil. Each floor section of aluminum is 555 feet long, with sledge hammered crinkles.
