What skyscraper in New York City has an angled top? Yes, of course, the “Citicorp” building, now known as 601 LEX, strikes a unique silhouette in the New York skyline. The 45° angled top, modern and sleek, stands in contrast to the 1930’s pinnacle-topped buildings of midtown Manhattan.
The 45 Degree Exhibition is a tribute to Hugh Stubbin’s 45° top, with product designs of the 1970’s re-imagined by School of Visual Arts 3D Design students.
601 LEX, between E. 53rd Street & E. 54th Street on Lexington Avenue
