    From the Facebook page of R&W. There will be additional "black vertical struts" applied to the facade, running up at the mullions, I assume.

    Hate away, but I'm still optimistic about this...

    I would check out some journal articles on the topic. I wrote a paper on a similar topic a while ago. You'll want to start with Harvard Design Magazine fall 2006 (all about Battery Park City) and...

    Yep, gross.

    It's a lot harder to tear down a 30-story high-rise than a 4-story tenement. Not just physically, but finding a pragmatic economic rationale will be difficult, if not impossible. Yes, once upon a...

    As someone who used to take the ferry in from NJ, this view that really excites me. Looking up and seeing the twins rising behind the winter garden and WFC is an image still indelibly seared in my...

    Ohhh... this one's gonna have a nickname. That West St. facade looks like something, but I haven't figured it out yet.

    Forgive me if this is covered earlier in the thread: What will be ready by September?

    Fine. Great. Alright, let's build something already. Before I'm gray and senile. Let's go!

    Yeah, by that logic, the CN tower beats them both. And we all know that the CN tower just doesn't count.

    I always thought the giant x-braces were the only interesting thing about the building. Guess I'm out-of-touch with the tastes of everyday New Yorkers yet again.

    God is in the details, you'll see. I'm a big fan of 211 Elizabeth. This is a higher-stakes project; let's hope the elegance and fun doesn't get value-engineered out of it.

  13. Poll: A shot in the dark

    I'm curious: Does anybody have architectural drawings or floor plans of this building, preferably Durell Stone's original? I'd like to use it as a provocative "precedent" in my schoolwork.

    Does anyone have pictures of the base? I'm in Boston, so I'm familiar with his ill-fated Stata Center at MIT. The detailing of the masonry portions of that building were incredibly awful, almost...

    And then there's this. Stephen Alesch, one of the two principals at R&W, apparently is in the habit of personally responding to comments posted on Curbed. If you scroll down the page...

    I'm late to the conversation, but here's a February 28th post from Roman and Williams' blog, with a new(-ish) rendering: http://romanandwilliamsnews.blogspot.com/2011/02/movin-on-up.html The...

    This firm just showed up on my radar, in a recent book called "Dark Nostalgia" (I recommend it, though it's focused on interior design). Here's their Picassa album for this building:...

    Just to be clear, The photos of the Standard illustrate a plain ol' truss. A big one, but a regular truss: all the loads it is carrying are along the same 2 dimensions. Space frames are best applied...

    beware of mixing satire and architecture criticism

    Needless to say, Loos' racial ideas were not shocking for his time. I recently re-read this essay, and read some recent articles that revisit it. The points to take away are that his tone was...

    I've decided I don't like this one. It frustrates me that all this gimmickry is required to make a building interesting. It's a shallow, pointless gimmick at that (visualize an orthographic top...

    Any takers on contradicting that statement by Ourousoff? (if you accept Black Rock's completion as a benchmark date) It's certainly not hard to argue when you look at JSsocal's picture above, but I...

    I happen to like the Pier 17 mall as a work of architecture. Am I alone on that?

    Speaking of codes and safety issues, I have my doubts about the physics of hanging a new structure off cables that are already supporting the roof and scoreboard. Or at least the practicality of...
