American Radiator Building

This year, a New York Art Deco icon turns 100!

The American Radiator Building, also known as the American Standard Building, is a 23-story structural steel-framed tower designed by architects John Howells and Raymond Hood.

In fact, Howells and Hood, whose neo-Gothic design won the 1922 international design competition for Chicago’s Tribune Tower, are said to have designed the American Radiator Building based on inspiration from Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen’s second-place design for the Tribune Tower.
