Flatiron Building Model
The Flatiron was designed by Daniel Burnham, a founder of the 'Chicago School' style of architecture. Completed in 1902 the building was constructed using a unique steel skeleton which became the prototype for many skyscrapers that followed. Although it was not initially greeted with public acclaim, it soon became a symbol of New York and is considered the nation's first true skyscraper. The Flatiron has become one of New York's must see tourist attractions - a true city icon. Chisel & Mouse, a duo out of Sussex, England, have handcrafted the building in its entirety, enabling you to view the sculpture from each of its unique angles. It is made of strong plaster that has a reassuring weight and smooth, cool feel. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. See more work from Chisel & Mouse here.
