Hot Karl Window Treatment

New, 18 comments

And now, some commentary about one of the Burg's first out of the gate Karl Fischers. "Seven Berry is yet another example of the folly of glass houses. Most of the units on the upper floors facing Berry look to be occupied, and they are hodgepodge of window treatments. This was clearly not the look the architect intended - renderings of these buildings always show luminescent glass boxes, with people living fabulous lives for all to see. Of course few people are capable of living a life for all to see, so people put up curtains. Mies van der Rohe got it right at the Seagram Building - everyone gets a venetian blind with three positions, up, middle and down." [Brooklyn 11211]
