The Chrysler Building – Diego Vega

The Chrysler Building in New York is one of the most flamboyant structures built in the city. Despite its height, The Chrysler Building also has a beautiful shape that catches the attention of people immediately. In the top you can see that the building ends with something spiky that points directly to the sky and it seems like a kind of edited sword, which is combined with concrete and other building materials that consequently, make The Chrysler a perfect structure. What I like the most is the brilliance that the tower reflects when the sunlight hits its top.  Once you approach The Chrysler building you can finally notice the mass and the gorgeous contour of it.

The first time I saw this building was amazing because I had never seen a structure of this type before. Even by seeing it from far I felt so lucky and exited to experience the sensation of being close of The Chrysler Building. The feelings I felt were unexplainable; it was a combination of happiness, emotion and doubts; I also wondered myself what could have run through the mind of the person who did this in order to get this ideal design. Its great magnitude makes you feel that you really are in a very well developed city such as New York. To be honest, every time I have the opportunity to look at this spiky building I speak with myself about the properties of it and to encourage myself too that I can do a building like The Chrysler one day; it is just a matter of time.

Since I was a child I have always enjoyed watching movies that were made in Manhattan; especially, action movies. I had incredible dreams in which I was here walking around New York, but all of these emotions were gone when I woke up. Now I can say that I finally made one of my dreams come true. The Chrysler Building was one of the buildings that I wanted to see and touch in person; that is way I never get tired of admiring the architecture of New York. Nowadays, one of my favorite hobbies is to go to Manhattan and look at the wonderful buildings; study and contemplate them in my own way makes me feel satisfied.
