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: The finest rental building in all the land gets its official unveiling today. Frank Gehry's 76-story Beekman Tower shines like a crazy diamond. [photo gallery]
2) San Francisco: To median or not to median. Haight/Panhandle residents participated in a workshop designed to help them reimagine Masonic Avenue. Squiggle trees are so lovely in the Spring.
3) New York: Before there was a crane collapse, there was a rendering. Behold the Azure, from SLCE architects. The 34-story luxury tower was/is to include a school once they reassemble the crane. [photo gallery]
