    What is the black thing outside the cube?

  3. David says:

    There is a difference between original and rebuild, not alike but beautiful at all of design better now. (I love it)

  4. Monath says:

    No roof access?

    I had liked Gehry’s (rejected) design, but now that I see this, I can’t think of a better solution. It is so respectful of the site, yet in its simplicity so commanding. And who could have imagined that the view from above would be so eloquent, almost a memorial in itself and certainly a link to the “forest” of the plaza. Thank god there’s no access to the roof: keep that green circle untrammeled; there are so many other vantage points from which to view the plaza.

    That Barbra Streisand will be the chairman of the center: another stroke of genius. Money well spent, Mr. Perelman! Thank you!

    For God’s sake, please pull all of those new towers down
