When I'm in Vancouver I'm going to take my BF who is a great photographer inside the Marine Building aka Smallville's Daily Planet and photograph the incredible lobby.  But for now here are some photographs done by Brian that really show how the set designers on Smallville were inspired by the original building and definitely paid homage to it when they designed their set.  Just look at the elevators people.  Remember that his historically significant building was built in 1930.  I do have many more from another site to share as well but I wanted to get some up first as we get closer and closer to another new season of Smallville. 


More interior shots under the cut including some nice exterior ones as well.  Just click on the images for larger views. I hope you didn't mind the wait [ profile] shardsofblu

I'm a bit confused which episode they are filming right now. It sure sounds like on Monday they were still doing IDOL by the description of the scene he What do you think?

Lovely building and gorgeous pictures.

I thought that the stars on the elevator door at the DP were SV set designs (stars and aliens and going up into the firmament), but those are for real.

The Marine Building, that goes on my list of things to see.

Thank for taking the time to look and post on my LJ. *hug* I'm glad I could share these with folks too. The building's interior was inspired by a combination of ocean/maritime symbols as well as the Art Deco influence which was inspired in part by Egyptian and Mayan art.

Definitely put it on your list to see when you visit.

These are absolutely gorgeous Cyn. I'm a sucker for architectural motifs and carvings, and this building has those in spades. And these photos showed them off splendidly!

I love art deco but the colors are not quite right for me, still the architecture is great, thanks for sharing.
