1960s Modern Federal Buildings: Office
Building, Miami, Florida Designed in 1961 and constructed in 1964, this
Federal office building was renamed the Claude Pepper Federal Building
after the long-time Florida congressman. The building houses employees
of several agencies, including the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Department of
Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, and U.S. Marshals Service.
Like many of its contemporaries, little distinguishes the structure from
modern office buildings that can be seen in many American cities, nor
does the design give hints that this is a federal building.
