Susan Slesinger – Series#4 Transamerica Tower
Transamerica Tower is one of tallest building in San Francisco at 260m. It was designed by William Pereira. The building was commissioned as the headquarters for Transamerica, a financial,services corporation. Although the company moved its headquarters to Baltimore Maryland, the building has retained its name, and is still featured in the company’s logo. The building is an example of post modern architecture, and the slit windows are a great example of repetition.
The photographs used as the basis for this piece were taken from the 40th and 44th floors of a nearby building, giving an eye level view of the building.
