Another Variation


Fuller Building
41 East 57th Street
1929
Walker & Gillette, architects
Ellie Nadelman, sculptor


With a nod to the classical form, Elie Nadelman brought sculpture into the "moderne" age. Gone are the characters from Greek and Roman myth, replaced with the "new" American worker set against the futuristic skyline. Not an inappropriate symbol for the headquarters (the first being The Flat Iron Building, of course) of this New York City developer.
