Description


This is a new version of the Lever House BAT I released some time ago on the LEX. This new version has more realistic textures, better nightlights, and a few modeling tweaks. This BAT can be safely used alongside the older version, but a Cleanitol remove list has been included in the zip archive for those wishing to remove the older BAT before installing this one. This BAT sits on a 6 x 4 lot. Five lots have been included- growable CS and CO lots, ploppable CS and CO lots, and a LM lot. All five lots will be installed into your plugins folder; simply delete any lots you don't want after running the installer. The growable lots are CAMpatible but do not require the CAM to function correctly. See the readme for stats and other details.

The Lever House was built in 1952 by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill for the Lever Brothers soap company. It stands on Park Avenue in New York City, and like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's famous Seagram Building right across the street, Lever House is a pioneering example of Modernist high-rise architecture. Lever House was only the second building in New York to be built using glass curtain wall construction. (Le Corbusier's Secretariat Building for the UN was the first.) The green-tinted glass used in the curtain wall was heat resistant and designed to reduce air conditioning loads within the building. The stainless steel mullions and window and spandrel glass of the curtain wall were designed with the intention of reducing maintenance costs, but they did not fare well under harsh weather. By the early 1990s, the curtain wall of the Lever House had deteriorated severely- water had leaked in behind the window mullions, corroding the supporting framing and allowing the mullions to bow and snap many of the spandrel panels. Varyingly-tinted green glass was used to replace broken spandrels and windows, giving the facade of the building a patchworked, neglected appearance. The building was renovated in 1998, and the patchworked curtain wall was completely replaced with modern weatherproof windows almost identical to the original ones in appearance.
