Photographer's Note

On Eleventh Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood, there are two eye-catching, modern buildings. Here you can see a little of both.

On the left is a residential building completed in 2010, and designed by French architect Jean Nouvel. There are 32 different window sizes with varying blue tints. In all, the curtain wall façade contains 1,650 different window panes.

On the right is the IAC Building, completed in 2007, and designed by famed architect Frank Gehry. This deconstructivist-style building is made of zinc and glass. All of the supporting columns are tilted and slope in different directions, creating a very futuristic look.

I like all kinds of buildings, old and new. In my opinion, these modern examples are a great addition to the cityscape. With original shapes and colors, they’re a combination of both art and architecture.

In the WS is a full view of both buildings.
