Flatiron Building Postcard--Build Your Own New York
This wedge-shaped building was designed by architect Daniel Burnham to take advantage of the narrow triangular block where Broadway and Fifth Avenue meet. Completed in 1902 in Beaux-Arts style, the building quickly became a well-known landmark for its dynamic profile and wealth of terracotta details. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:1500 scale, approx. 2.25" tall. All the cards in the Build Your Own New York series are mailable postcards, with space on the reverse for a stamp and address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams. There is also a Build Your Own Chicago Series.
