Towering ahead

  • Comment

Norman Foster’s architecture may be garnering some criticism these days, but he certainly knows how to grab attention. His Hearst Tower in New York was one project that did receive largely positive reviews but, not only that, it is now hosting an exhibition of photographs, drawings etc of itself, with around 20 people contributing work. Modestly called ‘Tower: Idea Identity Icon’, and opening today (5 March), the exhibition includes everything from coldly contemporary black and white photographs to sepia prints. German photographer Thomas Kellner, whose trademark fractured and reassembled images are particularly well-suited to the Hearst’s triangulated facade, describes the ‘jaw-dropping tourists and jaded townsfolk alike who jostle to capture its unique form with their lens. In their attempts to shoot its interior lobby, they can be charmingly brazen.’ Now, for a while at least, they will be invited in.
