The Most Iconic Building in Every State in America

May 18, 2018 Sanjana Saluja

Architecture in the United States couldn’t be more varied, from historic structures dating back to the colonial days to postmodern masterpieces—not to mention everything in between. Architectural Digest picks the most iconic one from each and every state from New York’s legendary Empire State Building to the quirky Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota.

1. Alabama: Alabama State Capitol, Montgomery

Completed in 1851 after the original structure burned down, the Greek Revival–style Alabama State Capitol temporarily served as the Confederate capitol building in 1861. Architect Barachias Holt designed the structure, and African-American engineer Horace King completed the building’s iconic spiral staircase.

 

2. Alaska: University of Alaska Museum of the North, Fairbanks

Architect Joan Soranno of GDM/HGA designed this modernist museum building in 2005. It houses a collection of more than 1.5 million objects related to the cultural and biological history of the region.
