Gehry-Tower in New York: Meter-Monster in Manhattan

Der Spiegel
by Marc Pitzke

We have no idea what any of this says, but we loved the "Meter-Monster" headline.

The Google translation isn't much help, either, but there are some revealing passages.

"New York by Gehry" this giant apartment is immodest: New York, looks like Gehry. Also, the course was commissioned, this time for the real estate company Forest City Ratner-billion. But anyone who has worked there for the one who remains, refreshingly clear.

"We gave him a free hand," says Gilmartin, development head of Forest City Ratner, as she controls the visitor through the partly still under construction located guts - a "vertical city", she says, with more than 100,000 square meters of residential and land. "The only conditions: It had to be beautiful and profitability promise."
