DESIGN PAVILION presents SVA’s 45 Degrees

7:00 am - 9:00 pm

SVA at 601 LEXThe 45 Degrees: A Public Exhibition

What skyscraper in New York City has an angled top? Yes, of course, the “Citicorp” building, now known as 601 LEX, strikes a unique silhouette in the New York skyline. The 45° angled top, modern and sleek, stands in contrast to the 1930’s pinnacle-topped buildings of midtown Manhattan.

The 45 Degree Exhibition is a tribute to Hugh Stubbin’s 45° top, with product designs of the 1970’s re-imagined by School of Visual Arts 3D Design students.

Designed by
– School of Visual Arts BFA Design and BFA Interior Design: Built Environments students

Led by
– Kevin O’Callaghan, SVA, Chair, 3D Design
– Dr. Carol Bentel, SVA, Chair, BFA Interior Design: Built Environments

601 LEX (formerly the Citicorp Building), in The Hugh atrium.
