Curbed National is our weekly look at architecture and design happenings in other Curbed cities as reported by our sister blogs, Curbed NYC and Curbed SF.
1) New York: A fascinating use of brick creates a wavy appearance on this 13-story condo building in Nolita from SHoP Architects. Don't worry the pretty brick waves aren't load bearing, they're just for show. [picture gallery]
2) San Francisco: We'll pray to that! The 15,000 square foot temple, Congregation Beth Sholom, from architect Stanley Saitowitz plays with concrete, glass and shadows to create a moving experience for worshippers. [photo gallery]
3) New York: Santiago Calatrava's feel good, post 9/11, reimagining of a "soaring bird" above the PATH station at the WTC site may be scaled back because of costs.
