Sight

Walker Tower

There are times when I walk down the streets of New York City and, out of nowhere, the beauty of a building takes my breath away. This building, located on West 18th Street, has been recently renovated and restored. It was designed in the Art Deco style, which focuses on boldly defined geometric shapes and strong colors, by Ralph Walker. It was recently converted into fifty luxury condominium residences that attempted to stay true to the original design while also incorporating the qualities of high end residential living.

Sound

Broken Bells - October

Broken Bells is an indie rock band composed of Danger Mouse (artist/producer) and James Mercer (lead vocalist and guitarist for The Shins). I feel like the collaboration of these two musicians can be compared to the art deco style. While Danger Mouse and Mercer combined their instrumentals and vocals in order to create a new innovative sound, art deco combines rich colors and bold geometric shapes in order to create a groundbreaking design.
