Out of this world! Go Yankees!

A true tradition of Foster's design.

the hearst building seem to be progressing well. Not sure how much i like the colour of the glazing?

The Philips Tower in Sydney is horrible- What is the point of the 50 m. antenna's?-well besides adding those added inches for more status... garbage!!

It would be good to see how the growing tower sits on the skyline. Anyone got any pics from around mile away?

I wonder why they didn't let foster design the WTC, unless he submitted a proposal and lost cause it wasn't great.
