IMAGES/VIDEO: New York Skyscraper by Frank Gehry.

When it comes to famous architects of our time, Frank Gehry is on most everyone's list. Below are a few images of his 76-story skyscraper towering at 870 feet tall in Manhattan. The New York (A.K.A. Beekman Tower), is not only the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere it also adds to the already beautiful skyline of New York City...
Undulating panels of stainless steel clad the structure, creating a dynamic exterior that transforms with light as the day progresses. the unit - with gehry's iconic use of form and material - has a sense of constant movement and appears as though it is blowing in the wind. The rippling form is evident on the inside as well where private units feature curving walls and windows that extend into the sky. 
...watch the video Gehry's explaining and sketching his thoughts below...
