  • Work is apparently set to recommence on a 250-meter-high residential building in New York dubbed the "Jenga Building". Designed by acclaimed architects Herzog & de Meuron, the impressive 60-strorey building will be located at 56 Leonard Street and will cost a reported $600 million USD. Work was originally stopped back in 2008 as the recession hit the developers (Alexico Group) hard and they couldn't scrape together the finances. In the original plans there was also going to be a stainless-steel bean shaped Anish Kapoor sculpture on the outside ground floor, positioned to look as though it were propping up the whole building. It has not been confirmed that this sculpture will still be part of the structure.
