The Egg Albany

Living up to its nickname of "the egg", Albany's performing arts venue is a truly stunning building (image by Nitant23, taken from wikipedia). It balances on a very small pedestal, thanks to a six stories deep stabilizing construction underground. Amazing design by Harrison & Abramovitz as part of the Empire State Plaza project. The structure took 12 years to build and was completed in 1978. More on this building can be found in the wikipedia link below.
