"Hypnotic", "Landmark", "Intoxicating", are just a few of the words used by NY Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff, in Saturday's edition to describe Frank Gehry's 76 story tower that is rising on Beekman Street downtown. Quite a review, despite noting the uninspired 'simple 5 story red brick base used to house a school'. Gehry, it seems hasn't had much luck in NYC, but with these kind of reviews, it seems that is all about to change.
