This unmistakeable landmark has been photographed a million times. Now make it a million and one.
Yes, it’s the art deco San Diego County Administration Center. Built in 1936, it stands overlooking the Embarcadero, just across Harbor Drive, not far from the Star of India. For several decades it also served as the Civic Center of San Diego.
Today, two large public parks are being developed on either side of the building, where parking lots recently existed. I considered posting a photo of the construction, but all you’d see is dirt and bulldozers.
