My interpretation of the Seagram Building located at 375 Park Avenue, New York City.

The 38-story structure was designed by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and on completion in 1958 was the most expensive skyscraper at the time. The height of the building is 516 feet. There is an urban open space in front of the building, which became a very popular gathering area. The architect wanted the building to have a uniform appearance and specified that the window blinds could only operate in three positions - open, halfway or closed.

I love the simple elegant design of this building and wanted to emulate that in my model.

Pieces: 67
