In the 1920s, architects Fellheimer and Wagner were leaders in the design of railroad terminals. For the Cincinnati Terminal, they brought in their friend, the great Philadelphia architect, Paul Cret, FAIA, (1938 AIA Gold Medalist). Cret was educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts but mid-career became influenced by the Modern movement. The result was Cret’s radically stripped-down classicism typified here. Model by Alex Juhola.
