Abstract

En la victoriosa América de la posguerra, origen de la nueva configuración del mundo occidental, surgió una singular obra que iba a representar la abstracción de los valores universales de la arquitectura moderna. La construcción de la Lever House en el Nueva York de 1950 no sólo iba a propiciar un punto de inflexión en la Historia del rascacielos y de la arquitectura corporativa americana, definiría a su vez un nuevo paradigma a partir del cual se establecerían generalizados modelos para la construcción del futuro. La oportuna confluencia entre los acentos pragmáticos del mundo capitalista americano y las formulaciones positivistas de la arquitectura moderna europea, convenientemente recogidas como manifiesto construído del Estilo Internacional, supusieron resolver de manera definitiva el prolongado dilema americano de cómo debería ser la adecuada representación del edificio corporativo moderno. El estudio se detendrá en el valor de la metáfora, la conversación y la oportunidad de una obra cuya proyección trascendió ampliamente las aspiraciones de sus creadores. Provocando una fuerte idealización que llegaría hasta nuestros días. ABSTRACT In the postwar victorious America, origin of the new configuration of the Western World, a unique work will represent the abstraction of the universal values of modern architecture. The construction of the Lever House in the New York of 1950 would not only bring about a turning point in the history of American skyscrapers and corporate architecture, in turn define a new paradigm from which generalized models for building the future. The timely confluence between pragmatic accents of the American capitalist world and the positivistic formulations of the modern European architecture, conveniently collected as constructed manifesto of the International Style, definitively accounted to resolve that old American dilemma of how should be the adequate representation of the Modern corporate building. The study will focus on the value of metaphor, conversation and the opportunity of a work whose projection widely transcended the aspirations of its creators. Causing an strong idealization would reach to nowadays.
