Moscow’s rapidly growing skyline will soon feature an eye-popping new addition: Crystal Island, which will be the world’s biggest building when completed. Sir Norman Foster’s enormous 27 million square foot structure will be a city within a building and will cost $4 billion dollars to build. It is scheduled to be built within next 5 years.
After spending your nights in a 300 square foot studio, only to wake up and commute your way to your tiny work cubicle, in a subway car that is so crammed with people you have to hold your breath just to fit in the doors, you may have developed a case of agoraphobia.

As Meatloaf says…Like a Bat Out of Hell, NYC’s New Museum has taken the Bowery by storm. No longer living in the three decade old basement dwelling, the collection of works is now on display in its 60,000 square foot home. Depending on your personal taste you will view the New Museum as a brilliant addition to the NYC landscape that is forecasting the future of the semi-seedy Bowery section of downtown, or you will see it as a pile of hideous blocks that is killing old school NYC. Either way, you can join the likes of Ashley Olsen and take in the latest addition to NYC’s amazing collection of museums!
