Wedding-cake style

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
120 Wall Street in New York, a skyscraper from 1930, is a typical example of wedding-cake architecture.

In architecture, a wedding-cake style is an informal reference to buildings with many distinct tiers, each set back from the one below, resulting in a shape like a wedding cake, and may also apply to buildings that are richly ornamented, as if made in sugar icing.
