The Flatiron Building in New York City
Breathtaking… A house built more than a century ago, in a city that is larger than anything you can imagine. Completed in 1902, almost an 1800 house, 87 meters tall (almost 100 meters) with an 22 floor count. Witch gives each floor a total hight of 4 meters!! Thats what i call ceiling hight.
Flatiron in New York City
The Flatiron Building, which when constructed was called the Fuller Building, was one of the tallest buildings in New York City when completed. As you can see on the first photo the detail level on the facade is astonishing, the style is called Beaux Arts and you mainly know it by those high greek columns. But also when you dig deeper into Marvel comics and see all the structural building architecture you’ll notice the Beaux Art style.
I love this house, and i love New York city
This is a post in a series of posts, the first one was “Why i Think i Love New York” a short and simple why. The second one was “Why I Think I love New York part II” a little bit longer and a more big WHY?.
Read them both and read this and let me know why you think you love new york, if you do think you love new york that is.
A “Flatiron” copy found in Chicago
The Flatiron Building is frequently seen on TV in the opening of the The Late Show With David Letterman and it was used as the Daily Bugle building in the Spider Man films. I love the architectural style and find it calming in many ways, i try to find the core value in why i love the style, but can’t seem to know why. It’s just the level of detail and the hugh amount of effort it took Daniel Burnham to sketch and draw this magnificent building. This is another reason Why I think I Love New York, and the little house from Chicago, makes me believe that if you want to build and construct a house like this today, it’s very possible…. Maybe a mansion like that… in an urban environment.
