Frank Gehry UTS Building

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

The great Frank Gehry just unveiled his new design for the Chau Chak wing building as part of Sydney’s University of Technology. Classic Gehry organic architecture that looks like the building melting into itself. The idea stems from a tree house structure with “a trunk core of activity with branches for people to connect and do their private work.” One side has the organic look with the other modern angle sheets of glass. Wish the construction partners luck in figuring out how to build this…lol. More pics after the jump…

Secret NYC Subway Station

Monday, November 8th, 2010

The NYC City Hall Subway station is a hidden architectural gem that has been closed for decades. The station was built in 1904 and features tall arches, brass fixtures, and amazing skylights. Even though the station has been closed it is still being used as a turnaround point for the #6 train. Next time you are in NYC jump on the #6 train and instead of getting off it’s last stop, Brooklyn Bridge, stay on the train till it reaches it’s turnaround point at City Hall. More pics after jump…
