St. Louis Centre Lives

by Michael R. Allen

Postmodernism’s preservationist audience has yet to emerge, but when it does it may find solace in the fact that not all of St. Louis Centre was altered in its parking garage transformation. On the top level of the garage, now called the Seventh Street Garage, remains the barrel vault skylight that once illuminated the mall atrium. The atrium’s openings have been infilled by new floor plates, and the interior’s white and green supplanted by the gray din of utility, but the lighting remains beautiful.
