Flat Beek Panned

New, 5 comments

Count ArchDaily among the parties upset about the wavy steel facade being dropped from one side of Frank Gehry's Beekman Tower: "When the flattened side was only a few stories tall, it seemed to be tolerable, but as construction continues and the flat side creeps up the full height of the tower, it takes away from the total effect of the building. The non-uniformity makes the skin appear artificial, and clearly denotes a 'back' and 'front' of the tower." Or as one Curbed reader succinctly put it: "Totally lame-o boring!" [ArchDaily]
