Glad tidings for the Bowery below Houston: the new New Museum, starchitected by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of Japan-based SANAA, is sprouting into the sky—the first tangible progress since last fall's zentastic groundbreaking and the subsequent moving of dirt. The photo at above left is from Will Femia, but the NewMusuem's got a live webcam on their site updating construction progress. Snazzy.
