Building History Detail
Reuss Federal Plaza

A fourteen story building with a distinctive exterior of blue colored glass built as offices for the Federal government. The interior includes a large atrium which opens up the space within. The color of "reflex blue" was chosen for its compatibility with colors found in nature. The building has often been criticized mostly due to its color but because of its box-like shape. Noted architect Michael Graves was especially critical of its design. It was connected to the downtown skywalk system across Wisconsin Ave and also Wells St.
