Proof that Architectural Innovation isn't Dead

Thanks to a link to Phaidon's Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture courtesy of Frank McGahon, I've just discovered a really spectacular building - the Hydra Pier, a pavilion designed by a two-person New York firm called Asymptote.

If this interior design project for Carlos Miele is anything to go by, it looks like we'll be hearing a lot more from Asymptote's Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture in the years ahead.
