Lever House

Gordon Bunshaft for SOM, 1952.

In contrast to the Seagram building nearby, this tower feels scaled to suit the goings on around it, mostly thanks to a strip of hovering office bounding the courtyard. Green glass and ample foliage help the building feel like a bit of an oasis on Park Ave.
