Here Are Some Architects Disguised as Their Own Buildings

New, 5 comments

If you're having trouble coming up with a cool Halloween costume this year, why not take a page from these festive gentlemen and dress up as one of your favorite buildings? This photo, lifted from the Tumblr Chaz Hutton, depicts seven New York City architects decked out for the 1931 Beaux-Arts costume ball as the buildings they designed. From left to right: A Stewart Walker as the Fuller Building, Leonard Schultze as the Waldorf-Astoria, Ely Jacques Kahn as the Squibb Building, William Van Alen as the Chrysler, Ralph Walker as 1 Wall Street, DE Ward as the Metropolitan Tower, and Joseph H. Freelander as the Museum of New York.
