John A. People’s building, built in 1976 and Jones & Haas Associates, exudes a strong emphasis of the horizontal bands that separate the building’s levels of masses.   Many instances of solid/void formal relationships can be found throughout.  For example, each floor, separated by horizontal white bands, extends out further than the floor below creating an overhang, bounded by large columns creating an inhabitable space outside the building.  The ribbon windows appear at both regular and clerestory height, a common feature modern architecture.
