Oh boy, this is an Italian job -not the movie! Of course, the architect is Renzo Piano and here you are, the New York Times building in Manhattan. Due to Renzo’s background, that is, engineering, there are so many details which I am happy to figure out. The building is a green structure and the design team planned to increase energy efficiency. For example, the double skin curtain wall, automated louver shading system, dimmable lighting system, underfloor air distribution system and cogeneration are the main sustainable design features. It is certainly worth seeing it. The sketch was from a picture which I took on a trip. Later, I stopped by the Muji on the first floor, as, as an architect, I appreciate fine pens and pencils.
