    Recently this thread has put me into a rotating state of confusion (though I choose to ignore any reference to orifices). Thank you STR for the renderings citation. The Silverstein Properties website...

    I'm confused. Wouldn't the external bracing be structural? Could talks with a potential tenant be so far advanced that a redesign was necessary? Is an unobstructed view that essential? Quick, have...

    The Disney Concert Hall is superb, but I'm wishing that Gehry pushes the envelope for something distinctive rather than derivative. I loved the cubist forms of his last version of his Brooklyn tower....

    Let me attach my hope to yours. You are correct to call attention to MSG and the present Penn Station. Good list.

    Thank you, MR_UWS. The editing and progressive changes in pov kept the framing interesting; the music added energy to the accelerated movement of the crews. Delightful, Charming, and Entertaining....

    If I could give Brooklyn a gift, it would be a return to the Gehry design. The protracted battle came at great cost -- with Brooklyn's long-term prosperity losing the most. The eternal optimist, I...

    I'm glad the original building can be seen through the glaze. Reminds me of what I refer to as the editor's prayer -- Psalm 51: "My sin is always before me."

    The view of the ESB looking south from the Rock is an iconic perspective as emblematic of NYC as the Eiffel tower is to Paris. Care should be taken if that perspective is to be lost. Back to BofA,...

    I'm sorry to be so cynical. Developers could still make a play for a newly renovated MSG, but the equation would probably include state, city and fed funds to pay for much of it. Money talks, esp....

    I hope you're right. Sunnyside Yards would be an ideal location for a Trade Fair and Expo Center in the fashion of those in Milan and Barcelona.

    I think the architect had a villa in Tuscany. Sixty Wall Street looks like a column from the Siena duomo with a french mansard roof. Barf.
