Hearst and the Blimp

A blimp passes overhead, reflected in the Hearst Tower in New York City.
The tower was designed by Norman Foster and is nearly 600 ft tall. The framing pattern (similar to the Swiss Re Tower / The Gherkin in London) saves about 20% less steel compared to a building with a conventional steel frame design.
