Nix Professional Building, San Antonio

Upon its completion in 1931, the Nix Professional Building, in San Antonio,  was the tallest hospital in the United States.  It was also the hospital with doctor’s offices, hospital beds and a parking garage all in one structure.  Among the many people born in the building are Carol Burnett and Oliver North.

One interesting fact is that because of the sharp angles of the structure, as you pass the building from the River Walk it appears for a short time to be one-dimensional.  It’s quite an illusion.
