Wikipedia defines a terminated vista as "A building or monument that stands at the end or in the middle of a road, so that when one is looking up the street the view ends with the site."
Fort Worth has quite few of these scattered about, I thought it might be interesting to discuss them. The courthouse terminating main is the most significant and well known. There's a few other notable ones in downtown, the Library is designed nicely as one, and the Intermodal station works really nicely at the end of 9th street, and St. Patricks termiantes a one block section of 11th street, and the convention center does the same in the other direction.
There's several that aren't that great to. The Criminal Courts & Jail terminating Throckmorton is pretty ugly, and not even centered on the street. The huge brick wall of the ATT building terminates 10th street looking east.
Burnett Plaza also has an interesting effect on 7th, where it doesn't terminate the street but does sit at the end of it because of the shift in the grid.
So anyone know of any more? Got any that you like or dislike? Do share & discuss!
