I love how this building completely dominates Midtown. I look forward to seeing the other 57th street towers joining it in the next few years. NYC will never be the same!

Bottom view is interesting, but from a distance and height, the tower is not pretty.

I don't understand how we lost a beautiful 1920s high-rise for this banal shit, while adjacent nondescript low-rises still stand. If 450 Park and 575 Madison Avenue ever get redeveloped, I'd like to see the low-rises demolished as well, and a tower in either location to dwarf 432 Park Avenue in height and architecture.

Easily. I'll use my recent viewing experience of Ex Machina as an example -- I had a lot of trouble with that movie's depiction of women, but I also thought it was an incredible piece of suspenseful filmmaking, and would recommend it to anyone on those grounds.

When it comes to 432 Park, there are times when I look at it and have a visceral negative reaction. I take a lot of issue with the squareness of the grid facade pattern, and would have preferred stronger emphasis on vertical lines. Especially when viewed with the GM Building in front, it's an unpleasant visual clash.

But I do love this building's overall form and presence on the skyline when I take a step back, and especially the open mech floors creating the "towers upon towers" appearance. And I come around on the beauty of the grid from an engineering standpoint if not an aesthetic one -- the simplicity of making the facade entirely out of elements of the support structure is one of the purest expressions of Modernism.

So, here I am, one person with two apparently contradictory opinions, depending on what lens I'm looking at it through. It's not exactly a freak phenomenon -- being able to metabolize two opposing emotions or beliefs is pretty vital to critical thought.
