One of the city's preeminent works of starchitecture, Foster and Partners' Hearst Tower indented geometric facade is also a pain in the ass for window washers. In the latest installment of our Street Seen series, courtesy of Curbed's video team and David Stein, folks on the street weigh in on Norman Foster's diamond-strewn design, which sits above a 1928-built base. From "ugly" "crap" to an homage to "progression and modernity," witness the wide-ranging reactions from a handful of amateur archicritics.
