The Nebraska State Capitol Building (1932) The Nebraska State Capitol took over a decade to complete. In fact, it was one of the Guastavinos’ largest projects ever: They manufactured more tile for the Capitol than for any of their other works. Hildreth Meière created the decorative tile designs, which were then laid by Rafael Guastavino Jr. Photo: Michael Freeman/Alamy
NYC Subway Tile - City Hall Station - Opened in 1904 but no longer in use today, the ticket office at the former City Hall subway station in New York City featured ceramic subway tiles, hailed as durable and easy to maintain, on its walls. The arches and vaulted ceilings were covered with fanciful Guastavino tilework.
