United Nations Headquarters

The United Nations Headquarters is one of the most influential Modernist/International Style buildings in the world. Standing in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay and facing East River, it was designed by an A-team of architecture stars from all around the globe. The team, headed by Wallace Harrison, included such giants as Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer. In the end, Le Corbusier’s vision proved to be the most influential. The UN Secretariat opened in 1952 and immediately turned New York City into the “capital of the world”.

Great as a gift for NYC lovers and architecture buffs alike. It’s available in three background colour options – orange, yellow and grey.

I illustrated the buildings using original architecture elevations, photographs and 3D models. Cross referencing of various sources allows me to achieve a high level of detail and real, undeformed dimensions of the façade.
