About the Seagram BuildingA classic example of the Interntional Style, the Seagram Building was designed by Mies van der Rohe in collaboration with Philip Johnson. Mies believed that a skyscraper's structure should be visible, so the architects used decorative bronze beams to accentuate the structure and to emphasize the height of the Seagram Building.
At the base of the Seagram Building is a two-story high glass-enclosed lobby.
