DESCRIPTION

The Flatiron building, designed by Chicago's Daniel Burnham was completed in 1902 and was one of the tallest buildings in New York City. But after over nine decades of deterioration and crumbling missing terra-cotta stones needed to be replaced. Restored in the early nineties, while with MJM Studios, Dean Mercado's and Alberto Penna's roles were in site documentation, construction documentation, and reproduction coordination / management of over 500 individual architectural ornamental stones.
