An architectural oak hidden in a forest of giants, 1100 Louisiana is one of those buildings that makes a significant contribution to Houston's skyline, but is overlooked because of its flashy neighbors. If the building looks familiar, it should. It was designed by the same company that came up with San Francisco's Bank of America building, which also features cutaways that reveal triangle bays like a giant Lego project. During the day, its pink granite ads an element of contrast to its green neighbor, Wells Fargo Plaza. On one side of the building is on open plaza which has been given a focal point with Even Jean Dubuffet's "Monument au Fantóme" featured elsewhere on this site.
