I took this photo from the 11th Ave. This is the secont time I take a photo of this building but now fromthe other side of it. The IAC building from this view seems like sea waves but made of glass.
The IAC Building, InterActiveCorp's headquarters located at 550 West 18th Street on the corner of Eleventh Avenue in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City, is a Frank Gehry-designed building that was completed in 2007.
Reminiscent of several other Gehry designs, the building appears to consist of two major levels: a large base of twisted tower-sections packed together like the cells of a bee hive, with a second bundle of lesser diameter sitting on top of the first. The cell units have the appearance of sails skinned over the skeleton of the building. The overall impression is of two very tall stories, which belies its actual 10-story structure. Vanity Fair commented that the building is perhaps the world's most attractive office building.

C'est une photo intéressante, d'une idée originale.
Bon cadrage sur cette façade de verre formant une vague.

I like very much this graphical proposal, very good composition using brights to enhance contrasts, good colours and textures too...a kind of photography that I like very much...
Have a nice day...

J'ai tout de suite reconnu ce très bel édifice. J'aime le plan rapproché avec tous ces angles et les dégradés de bleus. Beau travail.

Hello Andre. Lines, shapes, style elements, lots of glass, color etc. The modern architecture looks futuristic. The graphic style elements shows the personal signature of the architect. Since I can only say: well seen and presented.

Excellent capture of this modern design. Like the way you built the composition based on the structure and textures of the building. The achieved visual effect is stunning! Bravo!
Have a nice Sunday!

ya en la miniatura de tu foto he adivinado que este buen plano cerrado sobre la fachada de vidrio corresponde a una obra de Frank. O. Gehry, por su hermoso juego de curvas y líneas, creando siempre unos elegantes volúmenes arquitectónicos.
El efecto de la luz, las sombras y los reflejos sobre esta superfície brillante funciona realmente bien, y añade una gran calidad estética a tu composición minimalista.
