Architect Designs NYC Skyscraper Fit for a Khaleesi. Mark Foster Gage Architects A new proposal seeks to rock New York City's skyline with a facade covered in intricate sculptural details—specifically, gargoyles.
Architect Mark Foster Gage released the design in protest of what he calls "boxes clad in steel and glass. " The tower, planned for 41 W 57th St., gained the nickname "The Khaleesi" among Gage's staff, and really does look fit for a dragon-taming queen. The 102-story, 1,492'-tall building would be residential, like the infamous 432 Park Avenue, offering breathtaking views of Central Park—but more importantly offering those in Central Park a breathtaking view of their own.
"The goal was high levels of detail... Its height and position near Central Park make it inherently controversial, as New Yorkers have protested buildings that cast long shadows over the green haven in the past. New Futurism Shines in Group Show, 'IRIDESCENCE' Clara Luzian.

New Shepard: Bezos claims success on second spaceship flight. The Amazon.com entrepreneur Jeff Bezos has claimed success on the second flight of his New Shepard spaceship.
Intended eventually to carry people just above the atmosphere, the re-usable vehicle launched from west Texas on Monday with no-one aboard. Both parts of New Shepard - the capsule and its propulsion unit - landed safely, Mr Bezos' company said. On the maiden outing in April, the propulsion module was lost on the way down because of a hydraulic failure. True to his way of working, the US billionaire gave no specific notice of the flight, stating last week only that another mission would occur "very soon".
This means all the video and information about the event have come out directly from Mr Bezos' space operation, Blue Origin. Image copyright Blue Origin.

Jiangxi Nanchang Greenland Central Plaza, Parcel A. Text by Nate Berg The twin towers of Jiangxi Nanchang Greenland Central Plaza, Parcel A, were about halfway built when Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) received a somewhat inconvenient request from the developer. Instead of the designed height of 289 meters (948 feet), the towers were to be adjusted, mid-construction, to reach 300 meters (984 feet). “Adding 11 meters to a building that’s already under construction is not necessarily an easy task,” says lead designer Mark Nagis, AIA, who is based in SOM’s Chicago office.
