The style is not what is, is something new, something that was used in the future, an avant-garde design.

It's typical of the weirdo designs (by orthodoxic standards) we see rising in Europe. It will be a style of its own in the future but right now it's a clearly defined style

Landmarks Commission Gives Nod to Nouvel's MoMA Tower

By Eliot Brown
May 13, 2008 | 3:04 p.m

Rendering of the tower
+Enlarge Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel cleared a hurdle today in his effort to build a skyscraper taller than the Chrysler Building next to the Museum of Modern Art, as the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission today voted 7-0 to allow the tower to go forward, according to agency spokeswoman Lisi De Bourbon. Neighboring residents have strongly resisted the idea of a giant new hotel and residential tower going up mid-block on 53rd Street.

The tower, developed by Hines Interests, needed Landmarks approval because it was transferring development rights from two city landmarks nearby, the University Club and St. Thomas Episcopal Church. The commission needed to rule on whether the new tower would affect either landmark.

Next stop, where the controversy could get a bit more interesting, is the city’s land use review process, where City Council approval is needed. The local elected officials have expressed concerns about the tower, and in similar dances between developers and politicians, the land owners have been forced to give concessions and modify designs.

That's perhaps the most unique design for a skyscraper I've ever seen, very impressed. New York is such an amazing city, after visting for my first time in 2007, I'd give anything to go back.

City Council Approves (Shorter) MoMA Tower

By Robin Pogrebin

The New York City Council approved on Wednesday the Museum of Modern Art’s request to build an 82-story tower. The tower, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, would rise 1,050 feet, down from 1,250 feet, which was the height first proposed. The city planning commission stipulated the change last month.

Hines, the building’s developer, paid the museum $125 million for the property on West 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, which is to include a hotel, residential apartments and additional exhibition space for the museum. People who live nearby have opposed the tower as too tall for the neighborhood.

Because the lower height will reduce the available space by 150,000 square feet, it remains unclear if Mr. Nouvel’s design will be significantly revised and if all the planned components will still fit in the building.

The council approved the tower’s zoning variances by a vote of 45 to 3. The building, which would have been as tall as the Empire State Building, will now be as tall as the Chrysler Building.
