New York is no longer famous for just the Empire State or even the Chrysler building. In the last ten years, new buildings on the boundaries of modern architecture have been sprouting up all over the city. Foster + Partners' Hearst Tower just south of Columbus Circle stretches up from a base of the building originally built by William Randolph Hearst in 1928, whilst SANAA's New Museum in the Bowery starts from a fresh creating a structure of stacked boxes, varying in size and offset so that light pours in to the galleries below.

As this October has been renamed Archtober, celebrating all things architecturally wonderful in New York, we thought we'd have a look at the buildings that are flying the flag for the city's modern architecture.
