Hearst Building - New York

A Bridge Of Time

The Hearst Building in New York, headquarters of the Hearst publishing empire, is an architectural anomaly with significant sections built in different millennia. 

The concrete and steel base section was completed in 1928. The upper glass tower with triangular framing was completed in 2006.

I'll admit that the stacked design did not appeal to me initially. The upper and lower sections seemed too different. But over time, I have come to appreciate the aesthetic appeal of the structure in its entirety. Like the business that houses, the Hearst Building successfully bridges two centuries with class and style.

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
