Breaking—glass! BlogChelsea reports: "It’s impossible to tell if this is deliberate vandalism, a construction accident or merely a rock being flung up from 11th Avenue traffic, but there is some damage to Frank Gehry’s first New York building. The damage, at the corner of 18th Street and 11th Avenues, is partially taped up."
This breakage happens on the same morn that Sun architectural critic says of the building, set to become the headquarters of Barry Diller's IAC conglomerate, "Your mind keeps telling you that the Sails (as the building is called because of the swelling undulations of its pale façade) is a great and important building, but your eye refuses to co-operate." Pleasant symmetry, that.
