The Seagram Building is the only building in New York City designed by German-born architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Inspired by Walter Gropius and others at the Bauhaus school, Mies van der Rohe was noted for his visionary skyscraper projects. He became a proponent of the International style that is rooted in modern technological advances in construction. The Seagram building and the Lever House were so admired, the zoning laws of New York were changed to encourage similar buildings.
