Joel W. Solomon Federal Building, Chattanooga, Tennesseeby Wendy Darling
Right-side entrance to the building. 

From Wikipedia:
The building’s main entrances are set in the end pavilions. These are approached by wide steps of granite, with tiered cheek walls. Both upper cheek walls have stylized eagles carved into their corners. In each pavilion the paired and single entrance doors are surmounted by a curving window bay that rises four stories. Both are flanked by angled reveals, adorned with alternating fluted segments and foliate-motif plaques.
