Lamar Building, Augusta, GA, Kunstler's Eyesore of the month Juky 2011



Presenting the Lamar Building, Augusta, Georgia. The original Beaux Arts structure dates from 1913. The “penthouse” was added in the 1970s – designed by eminent architect I.M. Pei. Thanks to correspondent Tom Tomaka for sending. He writes: “Yesterday while visiting Augusta, GA I stumbled out of dinner and thought I was suffering the effects of too many Rob Roys…. If it was already so classic and impressive, why did they put a helmet on it?”
     Well, Tom…. because America IS Darth Vadar!
