Washington, D.C. Greyhound Terminal Model
Washington, D.C.'s old Greyhound Terminal cleverly adopted the beautiful art deco, streamlined shapes of the 1930s to suggest speed, style, and forward thinking. The building, located at 1100 New York Ave. NW, was designed by William S Arrasmith and completed in 1940. It remained a bus terminal until sold in 1985. A spirited and successful campaign was mounted to save the Greyhound Terminal, and developers were persuaded to keep the building as an entrance to an office block built behind it. This architectural sculpture of a stunning example of streamline moderne was handcrafted by the duo Chisel & Mouse in their studio in Sussex, England. It is made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched nickel silver. See more work from Chisel & Mouse here.
