Our director, David Assael, took some shots of Gehry’s latest creation – a wavy residential tower clad in undulating metal panels.  While still in the construction phase, it is easy to get the overall idea of the structure.  In person, the tower demands attention as its presence, due both to scale and materiality, is unmatched within its context.  Throughout the day, the light plays upon the curves making the hard metallic color almost glisten.   Some of Assael’s photos capture the tower in the early evening – the perfect time of day to see the reds and oranges of the setting sun against the building.  What do you think of Gehry’s skyscraper?

More of Assael’s photos after the break.
