Manhattan Carve

The primary slice at the base of the building, which is echoed at its top, is crafted to cantilever over Dyer Avenue allowing for larger floor plates above. The facade is a striping of glass and marble which remains planar with the exception of two ‘rips’ that stretch up its north and south facades. These become the balconies for each unit and gradually rotate up the building to suggest different views at different heights. These balconies were scripted in Grasshopper to allow the design team to quickly run through various iterations.

Designed and rendered while a Junior Designer at FXFOWLE.
