MetLife Building, 200 Park Avenue
New York, New York
200 Park Avenue, completed in 1963, stands as one of the first precast curtain wall buildings in New York, designed by Emery Roth & Sons, Pietro Belluschi, and Walter Gropius. BCA researched the feasibility of listing the MetLife Building on the National Register of Historic Places. BCA also designed and oversaw the cleaning of the exposed aggregate concrete curtain wall, which had dramatic results: the concrete went from being the same color as the building's tinted windows to starkly contrasting with them.
