Project Description

The Humana Building, or sometimes called the Humana Tower, is a skyscraper in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Standing at 26 stories tall, it is the headquarters of the Humana Corporation and known for its postmodern architecture.

Each of the sides of the building is different, but all meet in a sloping pyramid at the top and are clad in pink granite. The north facade's exterior gallery, for instance, is perfectly flush with the original Main Street storefronts, so that it honors the older downtown architecture.

The large curve at the top of the building serves as an observation deck, and is the outermost point of the building, providing for a view of the Ohio River and Main Street.

In 1987, the American Institute of Architects awarded the Humana Building the National Honor Award.
