Design: New York's New Nouvel Springs From MOMA's Earth

The New York Times has a gushing piece on the new tower planned for the site next to the Museum of Modern Art. Though architecture ace Nicolai Ouroussoff takes the museum to task for not developing the entire parcel for their own use, he has high praise for the tower's design by Jean Nouvel comparing it to the Chrysler Building, the Woolworth Building and the Seagram Building.

The 75 story tower will house some exhibition space for MOMA as well as a hotel and apartments, and restaurants. It was commissioned by developer Hines.
