FOUND: slanted building

RIP: Raimund Abraham

My dad just told me that an architect who came from nyc and spoke at his school was tragically hit by a bus and died just the other week. His obit was in the la times and his story was one that rocked me.

"Abraham himself compared the sharply angled facade of the building to a falling guillotine."

Meg took me to his building on 52nd btwn Madison and 5th and told me her story of how she and her fiancé both stumbled upon this magnificent slanted piece of architecture- it caught their attention- as it did mine today!

Gave me a little perspective today.
