Description[edit]

The set depicts the offices of the headquarters of the United Nations, located in New York, USA. The model mainly uses elements coloured in white and transparent blue, to show the building's windows.

The real buildings

The headquarters of the United Nations were completed in 1952, with 39 floors reaching 155 metres into the sky at the highest point. The complex was designed by a team of international architects, at cost a total of 65 million US dollars.
