Dezeen Music Project: When I Dream
by AB2G

We've had a hot, busy day at the press preview of Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei's Serpentine Gallery Pavilion which opens to the public tomorrow, so we were grateful to get back to the office and find this tranquil chill-out track by AB2G to wind down to.

The track was submitted by Curious Absurdities, an online music label run by General Reef, who we featured on Dezeen Music Project last week. Curious Absurdities have got loads of other great artists on their books, so make sure you check them out.

"Details revealed for super-tall tower
in New York" - Wall Street Journal


Dezeen Wire:
 plans have been unveiled for a 425-metre-high skyscraper designed by architect Rafael Viñoly for New York’s Park Avenue, which will become the tallest residential tower in the USA if built - The Wall Street Journal

While buildngs over 300 metres are currently classed as "super-tall", the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat in Chicago published a report at the end of last year announcing "the era of the mega-tall tower" and predicting the 20 tallest buildings in the world by the year 2020 - more details in our earlier Dezeen Wire story.

See more stories about Rafael Viñoly here, including the interview we filmed with the architect about the golden arts centre he completed in September last year.
