Beverage Can Building

HQ shaped like the beverage can

Businesses that sell popular beverages in aluminum cans can design and build the company HQ in the shape of the very product they sell. The cylindrical shape can be modified slightly for employee-holding purposes but the basic shape and graphics will leave no doubt whatsoever whose business it is and what their product is. The Coca Cola headquarters, for example, would thusly be identifiable from miles away.

Extra credit for night time lights and graphics showing bubbles and fizz.

       Shouldn't the Coca Cola headquarters be bottle-shaped?

       I thought about that but the can format is currently more widespread and the cylindrical can shape could probably hold more space for offices, etc.

       But curiously - Coca Cola's bottling plant in Los Angeles looks like ... an ocean liner?

       In the twenties and thirties, it was not so unusual for new buildings to look like ocean liners (with portholes, etc.) I read that, before passenger flight, travel by liner was one of the most glamorous experiences available, so naturally that influenced architects.

       Depends on how high the stairs are.
