Raymond Hood, 1924; David Chipperfield, 2001

Raymond Hood established himself as one of the foremost architects in the US with this building as his first major commission in NYC. In 1923 The American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Company, impressed by Raymond Hood's radiator cover designs, commissioned Hood to design an office building and showroom on a small plot overlooking the Bryant Park. Since 1980 the building has been on the National Register of Historic Places. Prior to the Bryant Park's existence, heating appliances were manufactured, which is symbolic in its architectural design. The black of the main structure suggests an enormous coal pile and the gold of its higher points reflect the glow of flames of unbanked fire. The building reopened in 2001 as The Bryant Park Hotel, offering high end accommodations for the discerning traveler.
