Video of Real Architecture Spring 2008: Renzo Piano

Renzo Piano introduces The New York Times Building, the 52-story glass skyscraper housing the new headquarters of the newspaper. In contrast to the usual Manhattan office building, clad in mirrored or tinted glass, Piano's elegant structure is clear glass. Sited in Times Square, the building invites interaction with the street: its lobby forms a public walkway between streets, and internal staircases flow along the side facades, allowing passers-by a view inside.
