Renzo Piano has recently designed the trend new NY Times’s building : please enter and marvel (words, images and multimedia stuff). For the Guardian, publishing a short paper about it with a set of 10 interesting pictures, this is the
city’s best skyscraper in 40 years.
Piano is so diverse and elegant an architect : Berlin (Potsdamer Platz), Rotterdam (KPN Tower), Basel (Beyeler Foundation), Bern (Zentrum Paul Klee), Amsterdam (NeMo) and many more outstanding buildings.
Back to New York City… Piano’s new creation is a
towering composition of glass and steel clad in a veil of ceramic rods that
delivers on Modernism’s age-old promise to drag us — in this case, The Times — out of the Dark Age.
