A world-class architectural landmark, the Humana Building, sets a high aesthetic standard for Downtown Louisville. The resulting story, ,square-foot structure was notably clad in pink granite.
It exceeded all expectations, despite some initial criticism. It was this boxy architecture that Graves eschewed. But it was this attention to composition and massing that made the Humana Building such a win for Louisville. The tower related in scale well to nearby cast-iron warehouses along West Main Street, to its interior marble rotunda, and the design is well-thought through-out the entire structure.
The 25 th floor offers a phenomenal layout containing an exquisitely detailed auditorium and a magnificent exterior overlook of the Ohio River. On the south side is a curved staff lounge area for each of the upper floors.
The entry loggia has cascading water fountains set within a massive granite colonnade recalling the Falls of the Ohio. High above, a prominent steel truss on the north facade echoes the structural framework of nearby bridges. At that 25th anniversary lecture, Graves was clearly proud of his buildings—one of the most important structures of the 20th century.
He said he would only change one thing: that the stone behind the entry waterfalls be a darker color to better show off the cascading water. The Humana Building is a sensory overload of color, shapes, materials, and experiences. The story structure is headquarters of the Humana Corporation, and was designed by the Driehaus Prize winner and New Classical architect Michael Graves.
Each side of the building is designed slightly differently, up to a sloping pyramid style for the upper few floors. The building is also known for its exterior construction of flat pink granite. The north facade's loggia is respectful of the older downtown architecture, being flush with the original Main Street storefronts. The open-air front portion of the loggia contains a large fountain.
The large, curved portion towards the top of the building is an open-air observation deck. The outermost point of the circle has space for a few people at a time to be surrounded by glass, allowing for views of the Ohio River and Main Street. The observation deck has not been open to the public since the September 11 terrorist attacks.
