I wanted to replicate them, particularly in the context of playfully mocking urban architectural pretensions, and how super skyscrapers end, up there, on top. I’m having a bit of a play with that. The Empire State and Chrysler buildings, they captured the obvious, the ‘point’. They are glorious buildings and that’s the virtue of being first on the block.
