    The zigzag roofline was the whole thing. They suck for doing this.

    Wow. I just saw this. Cetra Ruddy ruined a perfectly beautiful building. I was wondering why it looked so different. Those finials are f'ing stupid as well.

    So will everyone blame the cost of this thing and the Morphosis mess for Cooper finally having to charge tuition?

    I have to say that, despite the apparently dated use of vertical fins and glass, that this building possesses a certain style. It has presence, and asserts itself confidently. Handel's office...

    Actually this configuration is much different. The slope in these new posts is further from the vertical than the original stone columns. And there is the additional problem of the perception of an...

    It will be hilarious to hear the owner's reaction to these ridiculous windows once he actually experiences them from the inside. I mean- what is the point? The angles do not offer a single...

    The 83 mill. buys extended platforms and stairs up to street level exits. That's it.
    Virtually no work on the Farley building.

    Wow. If only that sodden roof extended over 65th St and created a pedestrian bridge.

    Just look at Piano's sketch. You think that has anything to do with the real world? Columbia's claims to need to control the entire contiguous site are spurious.

    Well, having worked on 565 Fifth Avenue with Norman Jaffe, I am sorry nobody sees the virtues of his 7 Hanover Square Building- done in a sort of Frank Lloyd Wright style, which you can see (at least...
