The model that was shown to start this thread was cancelled, but that same design could be used for a project that is by Pace University.

To me, it looks like someone held a magnifine glass at this building and is trying to melt it.

I think it has quite modest design in proportion to other Gehry's works.

unlike someone before my post said,i love wierd designs without them so of the most beautiful,innovative and style creating buildings wouldn't of gotten built i.e turning torso,cctv,chrysler..

the thing i like about gehry's design was the top iwas new and had an intresting facade,the base needed some work but overall a beatuy of a design..

i hate the new renzo paino design because it ordinary the facade is kinda boring,the top is blah,and the spire is WAY TO BIG.

I agree, it looks to sloppy and disfigured. I like the chosen design except for that stupid spire.

This is the site where this tower will be built, and it's on a this lot by Pace University with its new name, The Beekman Tower.
