Wohl Community Center
aka Wohl Recreation Center
1515 N. Kingshighway - north City
Most of the building is low, long, and unremarkable, but combined with the southern pool wing, it adds a note of cheerful, futuristic color to Sherman Park. Glass block upper walls bathing the pool area in generous light, while sliding glass wall panels allow fresh air in the summer.
The building's glass block has taken a beating, but it's still lovely. The geometric fence adds a nice touch of class, a note of unity to the entire design.
