Pyramid office buildings.

Indianapolis Pyramids

An office park in northwest Indianapolis has three buildings built to resemble abstract pyramids. Originally planned as a series of nine office buildings, only three were completed in 1972. Each has 11 floors and is 157 feet tall. For each pyramid, the two northward sides are made of concrete and the southern sides are made of glass, which reflect the other pyramids. They are quite impressive and are visible from the interstate. Two major tenants of the complex are the Art Institute of Indianapolis and the Indiana Institute of Technology.

They're definitely from the 1970s Logan's Run school of architecture.
