news building facade modelNews Building Facade Model

The News Building, also known as the Daily News Building, is an art deco skyscraper which was designed by Raymond Hood and built in 1929. It was originally the headquarters of the New York Daily News. The News Building is now a National Historic Landmark and is perhaps best known as the headquarters of the fictional newspaper the Daily Planet where Superman worked as journalist Clark Kent. This architectural sculpture is of the 42nd Street entrance facade with its 3-story limestone bas-relief depicting the people of New York City with a background of skyscrapers. It 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. The window frames and door are made of etched brass. See more work from Chisel & Mouse here.
