Ad-hocitecture

Boingboing.net links to a story that Tacoma's wacky St. Irene Office Condominium Complex will be torn down (link to photo set).

At least we still have Brooklyn's Broken Angel building, left (photo by bitnoots).

Broken Angel sits on an L-shaped street in Clinton Hill/Bed Stuy, near a Salvation Army warehouse. The street was the site of Dave Chappelle's summer 2004 block party, filmed by Michel Gondry for an upcoming documentary.

And there's always the East Village public garden tower of found art, right.
