Alcaldía de Bayamón by Enoc Pérez
We installed the painting “Alcaldía de Bayamón” by our friend and great painter Enoc Pérez yesterday in the San Juan office. Thomas Marvel designed the building, both the one in the painting and the space it hangs in. “Alcaldía de Bayamón” shows Bayamón City Hall: spanning over the highway, the building was completed in 1980 and praised as one of the year’s most innovative buildings.
Bayamón City Hall and Theater, Bayamón, Puerto Rico
The municipality did not own a property in the central part of Bayamón on which it could build a new city hall. A unique solution to this problem was to use the air space over highway 2 that crosses downtown.
