The north and east facades of the Humana building are dominated by columns, 7 feet square, forming a public loggia on Main Street and a shopping arcade along Fifth Street, which opens into the lobby and mezzanine. The seven-story entrance loggia surrounds a 50-foot fountain and is topped by a 1,200-square-foot triangular skylight. The columns are sheathed in 2-inch-thick granite slabs from Finland, with pink the dominant color. Photo by Christy Porter | staff taken Nov. 17, 1985
