Tower of Babel by Constantin Boym, New York. Boym points out that it's not the architecture of the Tower but its erection and inevitable loss that captures the imagination. "To that end, the object is made like a pop-up toy: With a simple push of one’s fingers the Tower falls and rises again. It allows us to re-enact the biblical narrative in our own private way, for contemplation, fun, or any other individual purpose."
