Mcfarland Clinic

-A A +A
1963, Crites and McConnell. N. Duff Ave.

The design concept here is pure Miesian: two-story frames are joined together as building blocks to form open and closed spaces. The vertical-support members are extended as legs so that the form hovers a few feet above the ground. As befitting a pristine exercise in geometry, it is set upon a well-landscaped site.
