Richmond Gas Company Building


  1. When I first gazed at these pics for the first time last year,I couldn’t wait to go to this site and check it out myself,much like a child gazing at a Christmas present under the tree. Seeing these new ones never seen, gives me the same feeling, only bittersweet, as now the building is no longer there to run to….. I question could I stand and watch them take you down-I look at these pictures, and find my answer. Thank you my friend for your vision.

The Building Bloc(k) is meant as a forum to discuss all things architecture along with the allied fields. Architecture is both my passion and my profession so at any given time architecture holds various sways over me. Usually it excites. Occasionally it angers. Sometimes it confuses. But no matter what emotion it evokes, architecture not only needs but deserves a discussion (sometimes serious, sometimes fun) to advance the field in a positive direction. Please join the discussion.
