Frank Gehry vs. Donald Trump: a tale of two towers

Trump World Tower (left) and Beekman Tower 

Frank Gehry, Toronto’s starriest of starchitects, is in a pissing contest with Donald Trump over tower size. (Insert phallus joke here.) Gehry’s Beekman Tower has overtaken Trump World Tower for the title of tallest (and perhaps most expensive) residential building in New York, which has really stuck in Trump’s craw. The real estate developer has taken to insulting Gehry’s work and speculating on the success of Beekman Tower sales. Gehry says Trump’s still sore after he declined to work on a project with the developer, then added, “I don’t like his hairdo, anyway.” The Donald’s retort: “I just don’t find him interesting.” C’mon, guys. We know you can do better than that.
