1139. Chrysler Building, New York

Dear Noah,

When completed in 1930 the most admired Chrysler Building was one of the most recognizable built expressions of the myth of modern luxury already embodied in the sumptuous and innovative 1930s classic cars. After more than 80 years the Chrysler Building is still the highest steel-supported brick building in the world. The light and dark grey bricks, more abundant in the lower and middle levels, let the "Nirosta" stainless steel to become the main cladding material as it rose toward the secretly constructed 125 feet-long steel spire.

Best regards,
