While reading a book devoted to Tadao Ando's houses and housing, I was pleasantly surprised to see an unfamiliar project. In addition to being fresh (to me), it's also in Manhattan. Ando followers are probably familiar with his unbuilt design for a penthouse from about ten years ago, as well as his interior design for Morimoto's home under the High Line, but if this project -- affectionately called the Crevice House, due to its small lot, tall neighbors, and zoning restrictions -- is built it will be Ando's first building in New York City.

Unfortunately the book does not provide more text or images than the spread above, though I'll be sure to keep my eyes and ears open for more in the future.
