These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

- Less Than Jake: Is This Thing On?

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Do they spiral up and are the cars like cages? It all looks very cool.

They do spiral up.

The cars *are* like cages. (however they are solid on the inside, theyre just glass. you can'r see it unless the light catches it.

Thank you. I will have several more images of this, and a small animation to put in my presentation to show how they move.

those are amazing! and I am glad I won't have to ride them. I'm a wimp about elevators.

I'm not sure why they're more scary than ordinary elevators..

I don't like riding regular elevators. I have some bizarre thing about them. And yours being glass would make it worse. I actually went up 13 flights of stairs once so I could avcid riding in a glass elevator.

although, I did really like the inclinator at the Luxor in Vegas. (it goes sort of sideways-ish, up the pyramid)

Gorgeous concept. I'm trying to piece together the mechanics of it, but it looks very elegant. I'll bet it would be fascinating to be in one. What safety measures does a thing like that have?
