The Marine Building aka Smallville's home of the Daily Planet has always been one of my favorite buildings to visit when I'm home because of its art deco architecture and its place as one of the historically important buildings in Vancouver.  I am hoping that this time we will be able to get inside to take some photos because if you think the twirling front doorsat the street entrance you see on TV every week are amazing it is nothing compared to the craftsmanship of the interior lobby and elevators.  The set designers on Smallville really don't get enough credit for the work they do and I hope to share some photos so that my F-list can see how much they were inspired by the actual building and tried to replicate as much as they could for the show.  I am going to post some photos in the next few days of the interior but for now I was doing some research for my trip to Vancouver when I came across these incredible photos of the exterior by a photographer called "Tripleman".  You can see below how even the roof of the Marine Building as been re-created at the Smallville studios in Burnaby for some of the iconic scenes.  So a big round of applause for the set designers for their hard work for the show *smiles*

Inside the cut you can see the images full size and a big thanks to the awesome photographer "Tripleman" for sharing these photos.
