Nicknamed "the Cathedral of Commerce," in 1913, the neo-gothic skyscraper became the dominant silhouette on the New York skyline and took the title of world's tallest office building. At 792 feet to the tip of its spire, the skyscraper was a marvel of early 20th-century technology and a masterpiece of the architectural arts. This exhibition examines the achievements of its designers and builders-from the advanced technology of its engineering and construction to the extraordinary abundance and intricate variety of its handmade terra-cotta ornament.

Venue Description: Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise buildings' past, present, and future.
