And in order to have a complete list, he has asked for the help of ArchDaily’s readers to find “diamonds in the rough” in NY, and I´m pretty sure you can do it:
Projects in the book will fall into two broad categories:
1. Those completed between 2000-2010 2. Those planned for completion after 2010
I’m interested in both, but primarily the first, as they will make up the bulk of the book. Those in the second category, which I will include in an “On the Horizon” appendix, should be actual projects that have a good chance of realization, not hypothetical or speculative ones never to go beyond renderings. Given that my research to date has yielded a lot more buildings than can fit in the book, it is not necessary to send me obvious choices, like 40 Bond by Herzog & de Meuron, IAC HQ by Frank Gehry, the Cooper Union Academic Building by Morphosis, or any other NYC building on the Archi-Tourist, for that matter. I’m looking for “under the radar” buildings, quality architecture that has not clogged the airways of the architectural media. That said, here is my criteria for what is included in the book.

So leave your suggestions on the comments to see if you can spot those unique buildings!
