Hayden Planetarium - James Polshek


The Hayden Planetarium, designed by architects Trowbridge & Livingston, opened in 1935 in midtown Manhattan.
UPDATE
: Oops. The planetarium shown here is the new one, not the one opened in 1935. It was the original that was designed by Trowbridge & Livingston. The stunning building in the photos was designed by James Polshek, and apparently "conceived in his mind" in 1993.

Except that the planetarium shown is the new one, not the one opened in 1935. The original was designed by Trowbridge & Livingston (not the one in the photos).

My apologies, sir, and thanks for the correction.

It's amazing how quickly the new planetarium has become so 'iconic' an image.
