Over on Tropolism, the topic of the day is the failed promise (so far) of architect Charles Gwathmey and his Gwathmey Siegal Associates firm. Quote: "Unfortunately, until the firm stops doing these segmented curved corners out of cheap aluminum curtainwall systems, with 80s-grid spandrel panels, with another blocky volume stuck on top of the building, as they are doing at 240 Park Avenue South (right), we are going to have to keep waiting for Gwathmey's promise to be fulfilled." Burn! But seriously, 240 PAS does look pretty cheap. [Tropolism]
