Honolulu, Hawaii: With its unique cement facade—known architecturally as a brise-soleil — which is used to minimize an onslaught of sunlight from entering space and deter nesting birds, the IBM Building is unlike anything else you'll find in Honolulu. From a macro standpoint, the building is an homage to IBM's rich technological achievements and was built to resemble a computer punch card.  Hard to believe that this building was slated to be torn down to make room for another highrise over a decade ago.  Thank goodness it was saved!!
Architect Vladi­mir Ossipoff designed the IBM Building in 1962.
