7 World Trade Center

this is fantastic signage. the facade of the new 7 World Trade Center is alternating finished of perforated metal (up to roughly 4th story). that's why it looks alternately bright and dark – likely just alternate grains of the brush stroke. anyway, as i walked by last week (i work down the street) i was suddenly struck by the sight of a giant 7! it's not something you'd see if you were looking straight at the building, but if you look at it from an angle, you'll notice slivers of steel protruding from the facade at a 90degree angle. the various pieces of steel form the number 7. so as you walk by, you're treated with this sudden visual delight!
