The Metropolitan Museum

I'm writing a report for the History of Art, and I need to know what building materials were used for a particular piece of architecture. I chose the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and I can not find much information on what materials were used in the construction of the facade. If you know what material was used to build it, could give a source or a link? Thank you. Essentially – Hello. I can understand that the problem with searching for information about this because there are numerous "Metropolitan Museum of Art", located throughout the country, just add the name of your city. The one in New York, commonly called "The Met", negotiated and acquired land on the east side of Central Park, where it built its permanent home in 1880, a stone Gothic Revival red brick "mausoleum" designed by American architects Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould. The Met has remained at this location ever since, and the original structure is still part of its current building. # Arch A lot of additions in recent years, including the distinctive Beaux-Arts facade of Indiana limestone, designed by Richard Morris Hunt and completed in 1926, have continued to expand the museum's physical structure. This information, and much more can be found at: Hopes that this helps you get started. Best wishes.
