Let us now take a very visual look at the latest architecture and design news as revealed on our sister blogs, Curbed NYC and Curbed SF, this week.
1) New York: Three guesses to identify the architect responsible for the wavy mashed up jumble of metallic panels dubbed the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. If you said anyone but Frank Gehry, you are dismissed. DISMISSED. [photo gallery]
2) New York: The "Tower of Toys" in the East Village is no tower of Schlitz pallets, but nonetheless locals are sad to see the two-decades old structure dismantled (for safety reasons). [photo gallery]
3) San Francisco: Confusion reigns. Pelli Clarke Pelli designed tower approved, oh wait, no, Pelli Clarke Pelli approved to design Transbay Tower. Tower rendering is of some other project, possibly related?
