At the corner of SW Hamilton Street and Corbett Avenue is a small office building called the Corbett Center. It is not much to look at when it is cloudy. But on a sunny morning like we had today, it is stunning.
Sometimes the design elements look like the letter Y. Sometimes they look like Christ. Sometimes they look like dancers holding hands. Sometimes I can almost hear the voices of a joyful choir!From the other side of the building, they look like hexagons. I had not seen these stairs before, so I had to take a look.A breezeway! But first, these asymmetrical lights caught my eye. Were they mass produced in 1963? Were they designed specifically for this building? It is a mystery because my online research told me almost nothing about the history of the Corbett Center.Wild.All I could find was the property description in Portland Maps. Now, back to the stairs.A secret courtyard.And then back to the sidewalk, where I found it interesting the way this one arm was left to hang out past the edge of the building.Thank you, 1963.
