A Legend’s Work
Today, we honor the legacy of former Design Partner Myron Goldsmith, born on September 15, 1918. In his lifetime, he was responsible for a number of iconic buildings, including The Republic Newspaper Office and Printing Plant in Columbus, Indiana, named a National Historic Landmark in 2012. Its crisp modern form symbolizes the company’s role in the community and the strict functional requirements necessary to produce a daily newspaper. Originally, the printing press was painted bright yellow and clearly displayed behind the 15-foot-tall glass exterior, raising its role from mere machine to that of functional art. Learn more
Architecture as Vibrant as Guatemala
Completed in 1978, SOM’s design for Banco de Occidente in Guatemala City establishes architectural continuity through the use of vivid colors, textures, materials, and the manipulation of light and shadow. Through a studied adaptation, local architectural concepts of open courtyards, terraces, gardens, fountains, and trellises were integrated into each of the three buildings within the context of contemporary architecture.
