In New York City, the work of big-name architects isn't solely limited to expensive condos or supertall skyscrapers. Many of these starchitects have also worked on decidedly less sexy projects that benefit the city's infrastructure, from subway stations to recycling centers to monolithic 911 call centers. And while these projects may not generate the same buzz as, say, the city's tallest skyscraper, they're no less essential to how NYC functions on a daily basis.
