Ripple skyscraper in New York

Still sorting Paris photos, but in the meantime, check out this BBC News video on an eye-catching skyscraper just completed in New York City. There doesn’t seem to be much actual architecture on display in the soulless, boxy skyscrapers that have been mass-produced in past decades, but Frank Gehry’s project is not just architecturally creative — it’s attractive.

The New York Times has a more detailed review, plus a slideshow.
