The circular Higgins Doctors Office Building in Richmond was designed by Deigert & Yerkes Architects, a leading firm in Washington, DC, for mid-20th-century Modern architecture. When completed in 1954, the Higgins building represented a remarkably progressive design and a rare example in Richmond of a Frank Lloyd Wright–inspired structure. Its form, flat roof, and use of patterned concrete block—recalling Wright’s same use of blocks for buildings in California during his “Mayan Revival” period—and vertical wood facing signaled a striking departure from the architecture of adjacent buildings in Richmond’s near west end. The building also incorporated well-proportioned radiating landscape features that integrated the structure into its site.
