Suriname, Paramaribo post office

Suriname heritage
The building was designed by the architect Peter-Jan Nagel in 1957. He chose a modern international style, with a touch of art-deco. For he had visited Miami and fallen in love with its beautiful art-deco waterfront. The building marks the beginning of the transition from the wooden colonial architecture towards a modern building style. Nowadays (2015), internet has replaced the postal service, and the building is temporarily out of a job. #Korte_Kerkstraat #Nagel #Paramaribo #postoffice #Suriname
