Summary "Set back from the street by a wide marble plaza, Mies van der Rohe's preternaturally elegant Seagram Building exudes a cool command over its International Style brethren along New York's Park Avenue. The sine qua non of late-modern skyscrapers, it has been deemed the greatest building constructed over the last thousand years by no less an authority than New York Times architecture critic Herbert Muschamp."--BOOK JACKET. "Animated by evenly spaced I-beams running vertically up and down its facades, the Seagram Building defined "modern classicism" and launched countless imitations. The ultimate in commercial prestige architecture, the building earned the dubious honor of an added luxury levy from the New York Tax Commission."--BOOK JACKET. "Acclaimed architectural photographer Ezra Stoller shot his iconic images of the building in two stages: the first, in 1958, just after its completion, and again in 1991, with the surrounding neighborhood dramatically changed."--BOOK JACKET.
"Mies biographer Frank Schulze provides an introduction describing the history and significance of the building."--BOOK JACKET.
