Upon entering Manhattan’s newest landmark, the Hearst Tower, you are first engulfed by the building and then, your view is directed upwards by the light. The sensation is similar to wandering around New York’s streets outside. The light, ground and atmosphere fly to your senses simultaneously.
Going upstairs you arrive in the large atrium, an Italian plaza to a degree. However, the sky is heavy and still visible at the corners. Comparable to how Atlas shouldered the world, huge pillars stem the delightful glass and steel facades of Norman Foster’s newest building.
The outside structure that seems to be in the cubistic arte moderne style disappears inside where the old building’s style dominates. My images bring this wonderful contrast of architecture and physical experience together in one place – perhaps a bit scary but at the same time playfully including the structural elements of the building itself.
