A bit not so cool as previous Gehry's buildings, but still cool.

Wow, don't think I've seen a Gehry building quite like that. I like it a lot!

This was the same architect's proposal for the headquarters of the NY Times, now being built under a different scheme by Renzo Piano:

Well, well, well I have to tell that I like Gehry buildings They're very impresive. I like his style. I don't like a typical skyscrapers based on a cube, ther're ok but I want to see something new, not agian Empire State or Chrysler... and Gehry gives me that

Gehry's stuff is usually a bit too over the top for me, although the one UC isn't bad and i quite like it. The NYtimes one is not too bad, but just a bit over the top. I agree that i like that they are not boxes, its just his stuff looks too cartoony for me sometimes, like Gehry's MIT buildings.

Even if the Atlantic Yards doesn't go through for Forest City Ratner, hoping that it won't, Ghery at least has the InteractiveCorp HQ, so it won't be a total loss.
