Back in 2003 when the plans for Barry Diller's new headquarters on the West Side, designed by the over-exposed Frank Gehry, first appeared we were ambivalent. While we were relieved that it wasn't going to be clad in titanium á la Bilbao we were still a little apprehensive about the way the building would actually look. So many absurd curves just seemed like asking for trouble in an office building. But having walked by the quickly completing project a few times we're glad that Diller took the risk. At least as far as its exterior, it really is turning into an interesting and noteworthy building. Look at how nicely it reflects and compliments the sky! We still wonder how Gehry's buildings will age long-term though. What do you think of the new building?
