Summary
  • Drawings are signed: "Carneal & Johnston, Architects and Engineers, Richmond, Virginia"
  • This accession consists of the architectural, mechanical, and structural plans for the State Office Building, now known as the Washington Building, on Capitol Square designed by the Richmond, Virginia, firm Carneal and Johnston. The General Assembly appropriated money for the structure in 1922 and 1923 (Acts, 1922 Chapter 151, pages 235-237 and Acts, 1923 Chapter 72, pages 94-95), and the building was completed in 1924 on the southeast corner of the square. The open U-shaped building was the first highrise office building on Capitol Square. It features a limestone base with a simple Doric portico. A terra cotta cornice and sculptural elements also adorn the structure. All of the drawings in this accession are noted as being "Revised."
