FLAT IRON BUILDING NEW YORK

built by Architect Daniel Burnham
1902
Flatiron's ornate but restrained facade is composed of stone and terra-cotta panels whose forms simulate the effects of rustication.
So-called because of its triangular shape, this was one of the earliest buildings to utilise a steel frame from which the exterior walls were hung, a method commonly employed around the world today.
The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
