Thread: MetLife (Pan Am) Building - 200 Park Avenue

    The Pirelli is right for Milan, it looks like good 1960's Italian design. It is very delicate. IMHO it would not work sitting where the MetLife does. But it does have a lot of design details in common with the MetLife.

    Pietro Bellusci worked on the MetLife.... Gio Ponti & Nervi on the Pirelli... Pirelli also used Marcel Breur on it's other office buildings. All of these guys were contemporaries and their work has a Brutalist similarity.

    Pirelli / Breuer (in Connecticut)... this is absolutely sublime (here too a connection to the MetLife):



    ^ This building BTW is now owned by Ikea. They have torn down a part of it for parking.
