Where/When: Near 49th Street and Lake Park Avenue; April 23, 2005
Inspiration: There was a time when we couldn’t wait for the future—and then the future came and it scared us. This view of 50-year-old towers designed to embrace the future AND set against a row of ten-year-old buildings designed to look like something from 1918 embodies that shift.
