auditorium building postcardAuditorium Building Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago

When it was completed in 1889, this massive building was a multi-use arts complex, including a hotel, office building tower and the acoustically perfect Auditorium Theater. It was the tallest building in the city and quickly made Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan famous as designers of a masterpiece. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2000 scale, approx. 1.5" tall x 2.25" 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.
