This model was exhibited twice in the museum shop of Caixaforum Madrid and Barcelona (2016), and it is sold well packed but without the original packaging. Perfect condition.
The Cincinnati Union Terminal is a passenger railroad station built in 1928. The initial architects were Alfred T Fellheimer and Steward Wagner. However, architects Paul Philippe Cret and Roland Wank were brought in as design consultants, and Cret is credited with the building’s art deco style. It features the largest semi-dome in the western hemisphere, measuring 180ft wide and 106ft high.
Amtrak abandoned the station in 1971. In 1973 it was designated a historic landmark. It lays vacant for the next couple of decades before being saved and restored by the people of Cincinnati. The building is now home to a much-reduced passenger rail terminal as well as museums, theaters, and a library. Cincinnati Union Terminal was voted the 46th most popular architectural work in America in a 2007 American Institute of Architects poll. Our architectural sculpture is of the fabulous art deco entrance facade.
