Informations

The Chrysler Building is an Art Deco-style skyscraper located on the East Side of Midtown Manhattan in New York City, at the intersection of 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue in the Turtle Bay neighborhood. At 1,046 feet (319 m), the structure was the world's tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. It is the tallest brick building in the world, albeit with a steel frame. After the destruction of the World Trade Center, it was again the second-tallest building in New York City until December 2007, when the spire was raised on the 1,200-foot (365.8 m) Bank of America Tower, pushing the Chrysler Building into third position. In addition, The New York Times Building, which opened in 2007, is exactly level with the Chrysler Building in height. Both buildings were then pushed into fourth position, when the under-construction One World Trade Center surpassed their height, and then to fifth position by 432 Park Avenue which was completed in 2015. The Chrysler Building is a classic example of Art Deco architecture and considered by many contemporary architects to be one of the finest buildings in New York City. In 2007, it was ranked ninth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects. It was the headquarters of the Chrysler Corporation from 1930 until the mid-1950s. Although the building was built and designed specifically for the car manufacturer, the corporation did not pay for the construction of it and never owned it, as Walter P. Chrysler decided to pay for it himself, so that his children could inherit it.

Informations

The Tornado Tower, also called the QIPCO Tower, is a high-rise office skyscraper in the city of Doha, Qatar. The iconic building stands at a height of 640 feet (195 m) tall with 52 floors. Construction began in 2006 and was completed in 2008. It is located on a 199,000 square foot plot of land, but only occupies 32,300 square feet of it, leaving plenty of open space around it to enhance its aesthetic. The circular footprint of the building, with a 97-foot diameter at its base, includes a ground level restaurant and a bank, among other amenities. Sixteen elevators serve the approximate 904,000 square feet of office space the building contains. The building is accompanied by 1500 car parking spaces housed within three levels of underground basement parking. Due to the hour glass shape of the building, the total rentable office space available on each floor varies from 13,560–25,800 square feet. This offers high flexibility in both the size of office space available and the layout of office space on each floor. The top three floors of the tower are luxury office space and are surrounded by terraces and balconies. The top level of the VIP floors has direct access to a helicopter landing pad.
