Gehry's liquid monument

In designing this emphatically contrary series of glass elements as the reception desk of an iconic 50s skyscraper, Gehry has created tension between the buildings' uncompromising rectilinear forms and the dissolving, refractive disorder of his creation. While this is as likely to be tension as an end in itself: a characteristic piece of material bravado, it does propose an interesting historical dialog between the original foyer,  its intentions, and the fluxes of contemporary design and fabrication.
