Who was the architect? If he was a famous proponent of the International Style, that would certainly help make a case for the historical significance of the building. I did a Google search, but couldn't find anything on it.

The International Style was a European style, pioneered by Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, and Le Corbusier. There are relatively few examples in the U.S., most notably the houses designed by Richard Neutra, which are also fast disappearing. It is an important style, historically, because it is the most representative of the Modernist aesthetic. There are many examples of buildings around the country that have borrowed design elements from the International Style over the past several decades, so the influence of this style is also important.
