166 Perry Street by Asymptote

"...166 Perry Street is the first major building by cult figure theorist/virtual architect Hani Rashi and his wife LiseAnne Couture of Asymptote (designers of the curvy white Carlos Meile boutique on W. 14, the new Alessi shop on Greene Street, the virtual Guggenheim, NYSE's 3-D trading floor, etc.).
Developers are the team who created the two original Richard Meier-designed 173-176 Perry Street towers next door. Interesting that they are trying a different strategy this time -- young turk experimental architect versus white-haired eminence -- for the third building in the trio..."
