The building is clad in white brick and dark gray brickwork is used as
horizontal decoration to enhance the window rows. The eccentric
crescent-shaped steps of the spire (spire scaffolding) were made of
stainless steel (or rather, similar nirosta chrome-nickel steel) as a
stylized sunburst motif, and underneath it steel gargoyles, depicting
American eagles (image), stare over the city. Sculptures modeled after
Chrysler automobile radiator caps (image) decorate the lower setbacks, along
with ornaments of car wheels.
The club is housed in a mansion built by Stephen Clark--Sterling's
brother--thus forging a connection between the building and the
exhibition. It is a great opportunity to get a peek into this space that
is normally off limits to non-members.
