This modern skyscraper is considered a landmark in modern architecture because of the use of the glass walls, one of the first to do this. But to me it looks like a refrigerator box, just like so many others like it around the world. Ho...More

Architectural historians will tell you this is a landmark building, a pioneer in the glass-and-steel era. Come and form your own opinion, but to me this is just plain and ordinary. It has been copied so often around the world in various ways that it...More

On Park Avenue this New York building by Miles Van der Rohe is a glass box design with slender bands of bronze cutting through the smoked glass. Modern design and inside is the Four Seasons restaurant serving American cuisine.

The Seagram Building is a gorgeous skyscraper on Park Avenue in between 52nd and 53rd Street and they put a new sculpture up in front of this summer. The Four Seasons restaurant is inside.

Nothing too remarkable about this one, although the sculpture out the front on Park Ave is quite impressive. Not really too sure that this one really requires anyone to go out of their way to visit.
