Guess the Architecture for 6/5/2018

Posted June 05, 2018 2:00 PM by MaggieMc

Can you guess this week's building?

6/7/2018 Edit:

When I draw a building with the name written on the façade, I replace that word with "Guess" or "Guess the Architecture" so that I don't give away the building. I apologize for the confusion!

Looks like a Guess Jean store in one of those outdoor style malls such as Crocker Park Mall on westside of Cleveland (Westlake, Oh) or Legacy Village mall on east side of Cleveland (Lyndhurst, Oh)

Its in the too hard basket.

Here my guess:

A chateau from Southern France, rebuild in Oklahoma to provide some charm to the otherwise non-historical building space.

Just an observation, it seems to slope away very steeply from the road: could that be because it's on a river somewhere.

Or is it just my misinterpretation of the perspective.

Last week’s building was the Central City Opera House, which is located in the National Historic Landmark District in Central City, Colorado. The opera house was constructed in 1878 by Welsh and Cornish miners, according to Wikipedia. The structure was intended to benefit “the gold mining town’s reputation as ‘the richest square mile on earth.’”

If you liked this building, you might find these 14 Historic American Theaters interesting.
