Architecture Photo of the Day #54 – Postal
Sometimes, architecture and function are married to aid in ability of the building to perform its task. In todays photo, this long corridor belongs to the Minneapolis post office. I believe the bottom of the photo features brass tubes. I confess an ignorance to how the postal system works, but I believe these are shoots carrying the letters. The long shape to the room has been designed to aid the travelling of these pipes – and the photo perfectly captures the depth of the space.
