Nebraska State Capitol, Lincoln, Nebraska by Doug Rotthaus
Postcard quality pic. Hello from Lincoln!
From Wikipedia:

The capitol is often considered the first major expression of what has been termed [Bertram Grosvenor] Goodhue's “freely interpreted classical style.” The cross-axial plan is similar to a traditional Catholic church or cathedral. The building's four wings radiate from a central domed rotunda, architecturally separating the parts of government. The unarticulated windows and flat surfaces anticipate modern skyscrapers. It is also the first U.S. state capitol with usable tower space.
