Scraping the Sky II


Another skyscraper in New York City.

This one is the Hearst Tower by the famous Architect Norman Foster. Β The modern construction was built upon an existing 6 story building, what gives a nice contrast compared to the glass/steel only towers in my opinion. The building was designed and built with a special consideration for the environment – 85% of the building materials are from recycled resources and the water for the errigation and cooling system is collected from a system installed on the roof.
