The

Basket

Building

has

a

steel

structure

that

is

covered

with

stucco,

which

is

a

mixture

of

cement,

sand

and

lime.

Stucco

provides

a

strong

and

inexpensive

surface

that

needs

very

little

care

after

the

building

has

been

completed.

The

inside

of

the

building

is

spectacular,

with

a

grand

staircase

and

marble

floors.

The

seven-storey

building

is

topped

with

glass,

so

the

handles

of

the

basket

can

be

seen

from

the

inside.

The

Longaberger

Company’s

headquarters

is

unique.
