Sculpture and Corinthian Capitals

Remember this?
Corinthian capitals badly damaged by fire. Restoration begins.
 Well it looks like this now.
Corinthian capital restored and installed on the Day Building.
The Corinthian Capitals restored by Design Form are reinstalled on the Day Building.

Built in 1907, on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978, and part of the City of Portland's Historic Alphabet District, the Day Building was badly damaged by fire in June of 2010. Renovation began in September and completed this January.

General Contractor was Bremik Construction, Stacy Ramakers was Project Manager.
Ecola Architects and owner Jane Glazer held an open house to celebrate. Lots of folks turned out. What made it interesting was that everyone at the reception had a different relationship with the Day Building. Special guests of honor were the Portland firemen who put the fire out. A fire engine pulled up promptly at 4pm so the crew could tour the restored building.

The Day Building reopens.

Wow. That's a building with a presence, isn't it? How great to have a taste of the myriad possible relationships under the roof of a single structure.
