build your own transamerica cardBuild Your Own Transamerica Pyramid Postcard

This skyscraper was designed by architect William Pereira in 1972. The tapered walls resist earthquakes, but the iconic shape has served mainly as the symbol for the Transamerica insurance corporation, although the company no longer occupies the building. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:2000 scale, approx. 5" tall. It is mailable, with space on the reverse for a stamp, 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.  Build Your Own Chicago and Build Your Own New York series are also available.
