It is neither brilliant nor the death of architecture.

And it isn't just radically functional either, it is just a aesthetic choice in a world where every building try to hard to be different (Dubailand) and this one ends up being "original" just for being plain simple.

But it isn't that original either, because buildings with that aesthetic has been build for decades. There was a time when this aestethic was the common ground, before that buildings were formally more complex, and then after, buildings became formally more complex again. And now this building is like a comeback, like a Neominimalism. During all that time architecture didn't die, just mutated.

Finally saw this in person. It's a lot skinnier than I thought it would look.

Neither 168th st nor the High Bridge are in Harlem folks, they're both in Washington Heights

I'm reserving judgement on this until
1. All the protective film comes off the windows
2. The crown/drums are completely lit at night

I live in LIC and can see this right outside my bedroom window. I think it will look better as it closes in on completion.

I saw this building for the first time last week in NY , and loved it instantly: it's sheer height, and small foot print: Wish we had some of those here in the Netherlands/Rotterdam! And what a great city to be in.
Keep up the good work!
