under pressure

I was just reading the New York Times this morning and came across this article, "In Manhattan, Some Signs of Spring" by Alexei Barrionuevo.  In it he talks about how some of the larger architecture projects are finally being completed after the recession put a hold on some of the more expensive ones.  This project, 56 Leonard, above is by the Swiss firm, Herzog & De Meuron.  I love the sculpture of the squashed silver ball by Anish Kapoor!  So simple with a bit of humor but absolutely beautiful.  If I could strive for anything in my daily life it would be these three things.
