New York Update 3 - The Architecture

Frank Gehry Building

SPOTTED! The new building by Frank Gehry. Seems to be a bit of a rough build. This is the first time i have seen the structure behind Gehry's curvacous building forms. It seems to be all in the surface as these images show the is a belts and braces job going with the concrete structure. A new found respect for the likes of Fosters and Rogers has been gained after seeing how the forms they create are implicit to their structure. Then again I am sure this will stun us all and create a landmark for the Meatpacking district of Manhatten.

During our time in New York we had the oportunity to meet Sunil Bald of Studio Sumo.Visiting at their Long Island Studio after first getting to know each others work from spam mails or a virus mail kept appearing. The problem sorted we got to now each others workthrough the web addresses. Hey viruses are not all bad. Superblue hopes to see Sunil in London soon or even in Japan where much of Studio Sumo's work takes place
