Stryker Building, Williamsburg, VA

IMG_3572

This building from 1967 serves as  part of Williamsburg, VA’s civic center. It currently houses the city council offices. The style of a brick box with classical limestone trim and a central columned entrance is more akin to a 1950s municipal building, showing the slow pace of modern architecture in this bastion of  Colonial and Colonial Revival design. The building will soon be replaced with a contemporary structure after a lengthy public evaluation.
