Now I’m not a big fan of skyscrapers because most of them look like giants that’ll squander me when I pass them by but the New York bunch of high buildings just got an upgrade. Renzo Piano was awarded by the AIA for the new New York Times Building situated between 40th and 41st Streets and it’s a beauty. The main feature of the building is the ceramic curtain of tubes that protects the building’s glass skin from the sun, the interior looks amazing and it’s all pretty and shiny at night. I better stop reading about it before I find out it’s completely ecologically incorrect and the whole thing breaks my heart.
