St. Louis: tiles

This is the second of a four-part series of tiles on the Henry Shaw School on Columbia Ave. in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis.
Mathematics is the subject of this design.


  1. Very interesting and intriguing tiles on the school building. Wouldn't you just love to be able to interview the designer? I don't quite get how this represents Math or yesterday's History, but I like them.

    If you go the the Netherlands DPs, you'll find out that facade signs are quite common there, and from way back. Maybe that's where the designer of this school got the idea.
