Big box building, not a big box store. Here is another building featured in the book I have called "Mid-Century Marvels". This one dates back to 1967 and it was designed by Al Beadle. I've featured other Al Beadle buildings before and you can read a little about this interesting character here. This building doesn't have a fancy name, it's just called the 5th Avenue Medical Building. Other architects of the era built similar cube shaped buildings during this period and the Hungarian professor of architecture, Erno Rubik created his famous Rubik's cube as a functional teaching tool to help his design students understand three-dimensional objects.
