A-Z Challenge: The Letter T: Transamerica Pyramid

 

San Francisco is famous for its many architectural icons, and the Transamerica Pyramid is one of its most prominent. Standing like a sentinel since its completion in 1972, and sitting smack in the middle of the Financial District, the pyramid stands at 850 feet (48 floors), so it’s hard to miss, especially when you’re downtown. Needless to say, the views from up there are spectacular! It’s the tallest building in San Francisco, and it’s my third favorite man-made structure in the world.

    the Transamerica Pyramid is most prominent – once an architect told me how she felt, when a little earthquake shook the building …

    Can see why this is one of your favourites Stephen! Remarkable architecture and photos too.

    • Thanks Madhu … I loves me my architecture and unusual designs are my thing! I love the creative imagination that goes into the conceptualizing and eventual building of awesome structures like the Transamerica Pyramid.
