Frank Fucking Gehry

New, 6 comments

Esteemed New Yorker critic Paul Goldberger is the latest to be transfixed by the metallic curves of Frank Gehry's 8 Spruce Street, calling it "the first big apartment house worth talking about in more than a generation." The full review is hidden behind a paywall, but the abstract has enough raves to work Gehry haters into a frenzy: "From the east you see it against the Woolworth Building, the most lyrical skyscraper in New York. Gehry’s building isn't its equal, but it’s the first thing built downtown since then that actually deserves to stand beside it." [New Yorker; previously]
