American Radiator Building
Rendering by Birch Burdette
American Radiator Building, New York, 1924
from Architectural Record, May 1924
New commissions followed immediately after Hood’s Tribune Tower competition win. One of the most prominent of these was a new headquarters for the American Radiator Company at Bryant Park in New York.
In the design of the Radiator Building we see Hood move away from strict neo-gothicism to a freer, more abstract interpretation in terms of overall form, massing, and detail.
