Faits

  • The building was the world's first office tower to feature floor-to-ceiling height glazing.
  • It was supposed to be a usual commercial building as it was planned by the late head of Seagram distillers, Samuel Bronfman.
  • The Seagram is the only building in New York designed by Mies van der Rohe.
  • Designated an architectural landmark in 1989.
  • There are also two linked rooms with the centerpiece of one a pool and the other a bar that is topped by a quivering Richard Lippold sculpture. Philip Johnson designed them.
  • Occupies only 40% of the allowable zoning envelope, freeing up space for a granite-paved public plaza.
  • On completion, the construction costs of Seagram made it the world's most expensive skyscraper, due to the use of expensive materials and lavish interior decoration.
  • The plaza is an expensive aesthetic and symbolic gesture, especially significant in the dense urban environment which surrounds it.
  • The Four Seasons Restaurant is inside the building.
  • The building is set back 30 metres from Park Avenue. In 1961, this building's design let to new legislation which determined highrise buildings should be surrounded by open spaces.
  • In 1984 this building became the 15th recipient of the American Institute of Architects' prestigious Twenty-Five Year Award.
  • This steel framed tower, headquarters of the Seagram Liquor Company, established the basic form of the corporate tower for years to come.
  • This building epitomizes the importation of modernist ideals from Europe to the United States.
