Photos of Gehry's Pink Window; Design a Chair for Battery Park

New, 5 comments

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?Mission accomplished: we have obtained photographic evidence of the hot pink window in New York by Gehry. The colorful window covering is on the east side of the building, facing the East River. What's most interesting, though, is that a tipster sent along a link to this forum where someone posted about said pink window four years ago. Does management like the window? Do they just not care? Or is this just one defiant tenant? Alas, we may never know. [Curbedwire Inbox; previously]

BATTERY PARK?The Battery Conservancy is hosting an international design competition to find new outdoor seating for the 25-acre waterfront park. Designers from North, Central and South America and the Caribbean are invited to propose a design for "an iconic, adaptable outdoor seating element." The winning design will be fabricated and used in the park, and the winner gets $10,000. Submissions are due October 30. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]
