Fakten

  • Built for an important international organization, this modern complex helped revitalize New York City at the end of the second world war.
  • Centerpiece of the UN complex is the Secretariat, a skyscraper based on plans by Le Corbusier, one of the most well-known modern architects.
  • This skyscraper was the first major International Style building to be constructed in New York.
  • The architects' use of green glass, marble, and bands of metal detailing are modifications to the modern architectural vocabulary.
  • An extensive renovation is planned in the near future that could take up to ten years, temporarily displacing the employees to a new headquarters building to be built in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens.
  • The actual design for the building was carried out by an international team of architects under the direction of Wallace Harrison.
  • Featured in the movie "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" (directed by Blake Edwards, 1976).
  • The 18-acre site was donated to the United Nations by John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
  • Typical of the International Style are its simple, geometric form, the absence of historical references, and its glass curtain wall.
  • The UN Headquarters site is officially international territory, not part of the United States - making New York the only state with a hole in it.
