For some reason I was just thinking about a department store we had around here years ago that I used to go to growing up that had a pretty interesting façade. I remember it being really weird as a kid but in hindsight I think it was pretty clever/witty. I also thought I remembered it being part of a chain that had odd architectural elements in all their buildings. A little google searching later and I found a few photos, as well as someone's blog post about it:
And the blog post, with photos of some of their other buildings.
The blog post is pretty negative and sneering, but I have to say I rather liked it. Considering that what stands in its place now is a megacomplex of about 10 big-box-style warehouses (Marshall's, Michael's, Toys R Us, Sports Authority, DSW, Target, Wally World, Bed Bath and Beyond, plus a few others, plus a Jared on a pad site) it's hard to argue it was razed in the service of progress.
Anyways, perhaps a bit gimmicky considering it was all the same trick, but I admire the balls of the exercise.
