Arched beams radiate like spokes inside the domed roof of the Post Office by Michael Graves. Graves' design for Celebration, Florida was well thought out:

"The design intention was to give the post office a character and institutional presence that would respect the traditions of the building type and its Floridian context. The rotunda provides a hinge between the town hall and shops and announces this small building's presence as an important public institution, while the form of the loggia, the materials and coloration are typical of traditional Florida architecture."—Michael Graves and Associates website
