photograph of the Markel Building in Richmond, VAWhatever you might think of the Markel Building in Richmond, VA, you have to agree it’s pretty original.  I lovingly refer to this architectural anomaly as “the Jiffy Pop building”.  If you’re familiar with Jiffy Pop, no further explanation is required.  If not, here’s a link to the Wikipedia article on it, complete with pictures:  I don’t know much about the building but I believe it was originally build for Reynolds, the aluminum company, when they were big in Richmond.
