Back from New York

 18 April 2012: I have returned from a week in New York with some architectural students, and it was great fun. We saw most of what you could see in just 6 days, and more perhaps. NYC has more museums than London, and of course, we were there to see skyscrapers and other great monuments (like the Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty).

Above, outside the Whitney Art Museum by Marcel Breuer. Apparently there is another Whitney being built somewhere in Chelsea (NYC)


Above, The Hearst Tower in 8th Avenue by Norman Foster 2007, the greenest skyscraper in NYC, LEED Platinum rated.

Oh yes, don't forget the Statue of Liberty. I've been to NYC 3 times before, but this was the first time I had made it over to the island.

they photoshop the ESB into the background


Do I enjoy my job? You betcha! 
Oh and I was wearing my 'Sustainable Tall Buildings' sweatshirts all week.
