22. Post Office 221 reduced

U.S. Post Office, 2008, Hahnfeld, Hoffer and Stanford with Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, Inc., Wyman Meinzer, University Dr. @ Bailey Ave., Cultural District. This small post office catty-corner from the Modern Art Museum was designed by local architects Hahnfeld, Hoffer and Stanford in association with the esteemed Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, Inc. of Philadelphia. The mural on the side of the building is a photograph of a Texas thunderstorm by Wyman Meinzer. The bent steel sculpture is what remains standing of a billboard that was ripped apart by the notorious F2 tornado that blew through the Cultural District and into downtown in 2000.
