The Chrysler Building

< < Back : : : Next > >

Walter P Chrysler's contribution to the late 1920's "race for the sky," the Chrysler Building in New York City dominated the skyline for only a few months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building.

While both buildings embody the Twenties spirit of modernism through the well-known Art Deco style, the Chrylser building is a richer, more striking example. Clean, strong, bold-ornamental but not overdone—the Chrysler Building remains a testament to the spirit and artistry of the industrial age in America.
