DESCRIPTION: This project re-imagines a terra cotta cornice that was removed and lost over 50 years ago.  Working from sparse historical photographs and Architect's design speculation, a showpiece cornice was created.  It's multiple high-key colors call attention to the building's focal position in the community, yet retaining a seamless integration into the existing fa├žade.
