Starchitect Annabelle Selldorf recently updated her website inadvertently reminding us about The Sunset Park Material Recycling Facility, which we covered last March.
Although a 2010 Archpaper article reported that there were talks about using goats instead of mowers to maintain the facility's lawns, Selldorf's website makes no mention of goats, very unfortunately. Other than that the facility, judging by the construction pictures, seems to be making progress, although it was originally reported that it would open in December 2011 (this month). We're pretty sure that's off the table and there's no mention of a new opening date on the website, but we'll keep our ears open.
In the meantime, here are a couple of renderings that we didn't post the last time around:
