Thanks for that, Paul. Of the Domino's office structure I have seen little but a few exterior photos. I once perused a volume, perhaps a coffee-table book about the Domino's work, which included section drawings of the interior, at good scale in sepia ink. The owner's private office sticks in my mind, with its svelt horizontal layering of materials and luxe fittings, borrowing in both cases from Wright at Wingspread, I thought . . .

The program for Domino was odd, sort of a skyscraper on its side. The interiors, from what I recall (1989), are pleasant, but somewhat confusing.

I like his Law Library in Ann Arbor.

Interesting fact: If this building was stood up vertically it would
be over 250 stories tall.
