the united nations

the incredible shapes that made themselves apparent during a tour i took of the UN this summer (first time for me since '83) left me breathless. high modernism definitely. you can almost feel the sense of possibility felt by the politicians and architects of the time. architecture - e.g. modernism as a unifying democratic force.
