I pitched a hanging curve yesterday that was knocked out of the park by you savvy MissPresers.
Yesterday was the Citizen’s National Bank building in Meridian. 1968, Richard B. Clopton and featuring a Hyperbolic Paraboloid Shell design with it’s roof. It was also a building featured in Malvaney’s Three Round Banks post.
Blake Wintory quickly ID’d the one term we had in this one, and Thomas came in with the building ID, locale and year. Thomas and ThomFred tied (according to the time stamp) with the Architect .
And yeah, the bad “curve” joke was intended.
Standings so far:
- Thomas – 4
- Blake Wintory – 1
- ThomFred – 1
Let’s see how everyone does with today’s:

That’s a softball: MSU’s Chapel of Memories…1971, I believe
You got the building and location (2 points)
Your date is incorrect and there’s still the AWotW part of the challenge to handle
Flemish bond! 1965
Darn – I was hoping that since I didn’t do a close up of it that it would take a while for someone to see it. Point for your eagle eyes.
That’s not the date I have for the building though.
Dean and Pursell
That’s the date I have for the building. Point to you.
And could the wooden uprights be considered brackets?
I had a feeling someone would “go there” with this image, but no, they are arches (which is not one of our words yet).
With glue-laminated construction these rigid frames are more commonly referred to as arches. Nice guess though, and a good idea for future words.
I have to ask: Is it our blog host, or a relation, that worked on the original plans for the chapel?
