New York stands as a global city today in great part thanks to the landmark collaborations of American modern architect Wallace Kirkman Harrison (1895–1981), whose legacy includes the Rockefeller Center and the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Most outstanding was Harrison’s leadership of the international design team for the Headquarters of the United Nations, a global symbol of peace and cooperation.
