Talking Manhattan

  • Comment

Off to New York, where architecture news is all the rage, not least as a result of The Architect's Newspaper, launched last month. The latest MoMA exhibition announcement is a 'Tall Buildings' show, taking place from July to September.

This is the third such international show on this topic in the past three years, the first at the 2002 Venice Biennale and the second at the Royal Academy. This latest is curated by Terence Riley, and will show 25 buildings and projects, including several London schemes: Ken Yeang's Elephant and Castle Eco-tower; Foster's 'Gherkin'; the Richard Rogers Partnership Leadenhall Street job;

and Renzo Piano's 'Shard'. Curiously, while several competition entrants for the 'Freedom Tower'will feature, including the Foster design and the United Architects proposal by a team including Foreign Office Architects, the winning design by SOM and Daniel Libeskind will not. Perhaps that is because it is still in development?
