crown hall postcardCrown Hall Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago

This glass and steel pavilion was designed by Mies van der Rohe as the home of the Department of Architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology and completed in 1956. Four 120-foot girders provide support for the roof, creating one continuous open interior space for classes and exhibitions. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:1000 scale, approx. 1.5" tall x 3" wide. All the cards in the Build Your Own Chicago 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 New York series.
