Louis Vuitton

I believe this is the building the houses Louis Vuitton the luxury goods store at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue in Midtown. Here is what I read about it on galinsky.com: "The transformation of the building's exterior from 1930 art deco into contemporary luxury was designed by Jun Aoki, the Japanese architect responsible for Louis Vuitton’s retail appearance in Japan. Aoki describes his glass fa├žade as “a playfully sleek meditation on crystalline transparency and clouded translucency.”
