The IAC Building, which is the headquarters for InterAcive Corp, sits on the Hudson River-facing lot on Eleventh Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets. I sometimes pass it when I am gallery hopping and when it is lit up at night it is quite a breathtaking site.
Besides the fact that the building itself is one of the most gorgeous examples of modern architecture in Manhattan, I am also quite charmed by the block-long series of video screens in the building’s lobby, which are visible from Eleventh Avenue. The visuals change all the time, but on a night last fall I snapped few photos of this pink and green set of abstract images.
When you get up close to the glass, you can see it is imbedded with little black dots, which I imagine help to shade the interior and add a dimension of privacy during the day.
I love this building.
