Merry Christmas from Oklahoma Modern!
Here's a special mod and hip Christmas present for all you fans of Mid-Century buildings- compliments of Uncle Sam!
Modern-Era Building Posters from the General Services Administration
This free series of eleven posters highlights modern federal buildings across the United States. Printed on heavy bond, each poster measures 24" x 36" and are oh-so suitable for framing. The following link offers details on each building and an email link to request your own copy of each poster (no order form is provided).
The series features dramatic photography of a notable feature of each building. Architectural styles in the series range from Formalist to Sixties Modern. Oklahoma's only building in the series is the Oklahoma City Federal Building and Courthouse (right) which was completed in 1961.
Most of the series can be downloaded in PDF format or ordered for no charge by contacting the GSA's Historic Buildings Program with your mailing address and which posters you want at the following link:
