Fire Station #22: Point Loma

Onion Icon  Onion

A missed opportunity to be sure. A mash-up of Spanish Mission and post modern trellising doesn’t do justice to the only new civic building in Point Loma. Cheesey detailing like the painted red square insets that line the building and the dark brown plaster support the pseudo Spanish Mission style of the building. A vein attempt to add public art was made with tile mosaics clumsily applied to the entry columns. Our civic buildings deserve more attention and investment than this, especially those that house and honor our fire fighters.
