About the building:

S.O.M. designed the headquarters for The Republic in 1971. The design is very reminiscent of earlier modern buildings of steel and glass by Mies Van der Rohe and Philip Johnson. The design won an AIA Honor Award in 1971. more info

A clean glass and steel box. The corners of the building are provided with blinds as these parts of the building contain private offices and boardroom spaces.
No blinds are apparent on the main open office portions of the building. Uniform work cubicles present themselves to the street.
