860 Lake Shore Drive Apartments Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago
This 1951 complex by Mies van der Rohe is a very early example of Modernist high-rise architecture. The two towers are identical, but set at asymmetrical angles from each other so that they create a dynamic relationship of the steel and glass walls with the space between them. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2000 scale, approx. 1.5" tall. 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.
Size: card--4-5/8" x 6-3/4"
