We just returned from our amazing trip to New York where we also captured this modernist skyscraper of the United Nations Headquarters.

Completed in 1952, the building is the seminal masterpiece of international post-war modernism. The original design, oversaw by American architects Wallace K. Harrison and Max Abramowitz, was the symbiosis of two submitted projects by Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer. Their different ideas finally met in the three buildings scheme with the tall tower of secretariat (pictured), low horizontal block with housing and the other meeting rooms and General Assembly Hall building.
