8 Spruce Street, New York City
Rising 76 stories above New York City's Financial District, Frank Gehry's 8 Spruce Street residential tower awes passersby with its wrinkled, stainless steel exterior. More than 10,000 steel panels comprise the building's skin. Each is shaped differently from the others to give the facade its undulating appearance. The first five floors of the building house a public elementary school, while the remainder of the building contains 898 luxury rental apartments.
