Sunrise Tower

Sunrise Tower

Frank Gehry is one of the most famous living American architects. I watched this tower on Spruce St in New York go up across several visits to the city. My eye is always drawn to skyscrapers, and as it was clear that this building would have such a unique form, I always looked for it. The wavy front almost makes it looks like it is waving like a flag and not strong and stationary.

I took this picture at sunrise. I was up early because of jet lag and went for a walk downtown. The streets were still dark, but the building was reflecting the glowing sky. Without a tripod, I really had to up the ISO to be able to capture this. The tower looks like a bright beacon in a dark city.
