The original design for the upcoming MoMA Tower set to be built in NYC has officially been downgraded in size. Architect Jean Nouvel initially set out to build the tower to rival that of the Empire State Building, but after reconsideration from the City Planning Commission, Nouvel's design was cut down to 78-stories and 629,000 square feet. We're still looking forward to the building, but can't help but agree that original looked bigger, better, and more bad ass. [Observer]
