Cass Gilbert

This 4 million sq-ft site served as the largest military supply base in the U.S. through WWII and features warehouses with long, sky-lit central galleries, connected through a network of bridges and piers. Cass Gilbert’s utilitarian design, devoid of extraneous ornament in its use of girder-less steel reinforced concrete slabs, was atypical of Gilbert’s ordinarily decorative style and highly innovative for the time.
