Is there a codified term for buildings that are built on acute angle lots and thus are acute angled themselves? I am thinking of the Flatiron (Fuller) Building, NYC, 1902. Art deco from the early 1900s type buildings.
i believe they are called 'flatiron.' you can have a flatiron building in your neighborhood, but it isn't the flatiron building (unless the flatiron building is in your neighborhood).
Yes, I agree. It seems they are all being named after the comment made over 100 years ago. I wonder if the industry should codify the term or create a more apt one. 'Horizontal triangular buildings constrained by a triangular parcel?
oh you mean a Hotribuco-b-tripar?
I'll call marketing.
The word triangular comes to mind
