The short story "The Woman Who Fell in Love with a Postmodern Building and Set Her Lovers’ Boat on Fire" by Thaddeus Howze features three buildings:
(...) an old world church in New York, (...) Churchill,
(...) Pierce, her home on the bay in Quincy, Massachusetts.
(...) all curves and sharp angles in the sun, deliberate — steel and glass, concrete and rebar.
Made by an eccentric architect who, soon after completing Karls, went quietly mad. Karls was the personification of said madness, twisted, distorted, his inner spirit matched his outer appearance.
The buildings shown are the ones that inspired the ones in the story, courtesy of the author.
So which buildings are these, and who were the architects?
