By the way, the soft-launched "Architecture in Windows" project is officially out the door now. The effort, which candies up a handful of empty Union Square storefronts while teaching us about architecture, was put together by the Union Square Association and the four architecture firms involved: Brand + Allen Architects, Inc., Charles Bloszies, FME Architecture + Design, and Gensler. Among the displays: "Union Square as gateway to Chinatown," "reused and repurposed materials," an "interactive work of art" combining architecture and fashion, the history of the American Conservatory Theater, and an architectural model of the Shanghai Tower. Check out their website for a pretty map, or our October post for the interactive version.
