Lawrence Monberg, Architect

— 1937 —

Designed by Danish-born architect Lawrence Monberg, the Quisling Towers is a striking example of the Art Moderne style. Art Moderne was influenced by the emerging industrial design for ships, airplanes and cars, featuring such aerodynamic properties as smooth surfaces and curved corners. The exterior is of buff-gray brick, Bedford limestone and terra cotta. Distinguished by its sweeping sculptural lines, the elegant exterior is complemented by distinctive interior elements: A small number of units feature a two-story plan with curved stairs, a fireplace and balcony.
