He also made this highly
detailed nine inch replica, made of pewter and plated in 24 karat gold.
The base is solid Negro Monterey marble. 'The Glass Tower' was designed
by William Creber whose work on "The Towering Inferno" earned him his
second Academy Award nomination. Based on Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Mile-High
Skyscraper', this crystalline-shaped high-rise not only met the special
challenges of the demanding screenplay but also triumphs as a fascinating
and complex visual in its own right.
Someone also sent me pics
of the glass tower made by knexx (you know, that kid's stuff where you
can build things). But those pics are lost. Shame on me, but I also
don't know who was the builder of it. If you read this: mail
me, because we want to see it again !
