Lescaze House Facade Model
In 1933-34 William Lescaze, the revered modernist architect, designed and built his own house in Manhattan. Claimed to be New York's first modernist house, it stands out from its row of brownstones due to its striking design. White concrete, glass bricks, an absence of ornamentation, and its use of strong geometric forms make this house unique. Lescaze's approach to architecture can be seen in every facet of the building. From the external design to the internal layout, his focus on function and practical living are evident. This architectural sculpture of the front facade of the house was handcrafted by the duo Chisel & Mouse in their studio in Sussex, England and is made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel.
