Idiosyncratic urban architecture

In late 19th century American architecture, there was a brief period when architect and client broke the rules and used decoration that was bold,even bizarre — suggesting ancient Pacific carvings (or at least in the architect’s imagination). Symmetry was much less of a restraint; colors and textured were mixed and challenged each other.
