Hearst Tower

I was watching an early episode of The City a couple of days ago (yes, I love trashy American television) when a particular building stood out to me during a city shot. After some research I found that this building is called the Hearst Tower, which houses publications such as Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Seventeen, etc.

The Hearst Tower is apparently the first recognised sustainable office design (both exterior and interior) within New York City. However, it's incredible facetted silhouette is what caught my eye. I love the triangle forms that make up the skyscraper, and have already begun sketching out a few concepts for typefaces inspired by these.
