This is a 18-point chart showing San Jose buildings of architectural, cultural, or social importance, all of which were bulldozed, destroyed, or burned out of existence between 1897 and 2018. There are so many lost buildings of note here. The Fredericksburg Brewery’s stepped gables are incredible, the Spanish colonial Grant School and Auditorium Rink, some brutalism (MLK Library, the SJ Mercury Building), some futuristic ambitions (the Pestana Building) and my personal favourite: A. D. M. Cooper’s “Egyptian Castle.” Built in 1909 on East San Antonio Street, the popular painter’s studio was a bungalow-sized Bomenian reinterpretation of Egyptian architecture. It’d be striking and unusual today, but it was even more striking and unusual a century ago. Printed in an open edition, signed and dated on reverse.
