The North Thompson Street Historic District in Richmond encompasses a cohesive collection of five International Style office buildings and one bank, built between 1955 and 1959. Each building clearly conveys defining characteristics of the International Style including lack of ornamentation, smooth textures, flat roofs, ribbons of windows or glass curtain walls, and asymmetrical elevations. The buildings, which contribute to the district’s historic character, were all designed by architectural firms and involved architects who would go on to greater recognition in Richmond and Virginia.
