  • In 1914 the Purdue State Bank, the smallest and least expensive of architect Louis Sullivan's "Jewel Boxes" was completed in West Lafayette, Indiana, United States. Built on a tiny, triangular shaped lot the building makes the most of the small space alloted to it. The typical Sullivanesque ornamentation is held to a minimum on this building, being limited to a few terra cotta panels, in what Elia terms a "possibly feminine element of the terra cotta lacework".
