The Flatiron building is located on 175 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Originally called the Fuller building, it quickly became known as the Flatiron due to its wedge shaped similarity to a cast iron clothes iron.
The building was designed as a vertical Renaissance Palazzo with Beaux-Arts styling by Daniel Burnham. Like a classical Greek column, the façade of the Flatiron is divided into a base, shaft and capitol.
Materials change from limestone as the base to glazed terracotta as the floors rise.
