On november 19th, The Guardian ran a story which compared pitches made by four great architects to win a competition for a new building in New York. The article offers a great insight: we actually get to see Richard Rogers (Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners), Zaha Hadid, Rem Koolhaas (OMA) and Norman Foster (Foster and Partners) presenting their proposal. It is a definite must-see!
