Welcome to the first run of Archigames, a new Curbed game wherein nominated local buildings of a particular style are matched up in sudden death pairings to decide the most suitable representative of said style. This week it's Postmodern (PoMo), and the second semifinal is below. Brush up on the nominees, but always defer to your tastes when casting your vote. Polls close tomorrow at noon. Thanks for playing!
The last two graduates of the first round meet today in a real bench-clearer. Two Prudential and NBC Tower both took their early round matches decisively, but NBC had a somewhat larger margin of victory (probably because it wasn't facing the mighty Thmopson Center). 2 Pru has the bigger profile on the scene, but they're a pretty natural pairing: they're tall, showy, and reminiscent of older, more illustrious buildings. Which will you send to tomorrow's final?
