Product Description

urban remains is proud to offer the rescued remains (in the form of perforated beams) from the recently demolished dexter building built by adler and sullivan in 1887. these structural beams are certainly the precursor to the eventual development of the modern day skyscraper. said another way, this particular beam configuration may very well be the first example of architecture's "exoskeleton." this allowed for more interior space to display the furniture of r. deimel & bros. please call or email for further information (i.e., pricing, linear feet needed, etc).
