Indeed mr. Weidncol we wouldn't want this thread to get thrown off topic towards of all things, the ungodly discussion of milk cartons! However it would seem that our European brethren were attempting to suggest a cool nickname for this structure. It's a clever concept however milk cartons don't look like little pyramids in New York City or anywhere else in the U.S. Of A. That's cool that they look /looked like that over there though! But calling this tower a milk carton.... I mean you're from Texas weidncol! You know what I'm talkin about! Yeeehaaw!

Architects get their inspiration from everywhere: pencils, sailboats and milk cartons (which were certainly like that in the US... at least in my American childhood).

As much as I love this being in NYC, I kind of wonder how this tower would look in a city in which it was the tallest or one of the tallest. Someone feel like doing some photoshopping just for the fun of it?

Well at least it's on the waterfront so it will never be blocked from the west.

To think the 4500 year old pyramid of Giza tops this building by 7 meters quite awesome by the way...

I found this courtyard picture from not that long ago on BIG's w57 project page. As far as I could see it hasn't been posted here so far.

Cladding Changes?

So speaking of the big.dk project page, has anyone else noticed that the cladding at the peak has changed from a mostly closed-off look, to a fully open look?

What does everyone think?

Also, this is the first time I'm noticing that the rear corner of the building (The tallest point) is not quite square? The image somewhere half way through the presentation slides seems to suggest that the corner is inset slightly... Interesting...

http://big.dk/#projects-w57

Sorry, I can't quite figure out how to link directly to the images...

Re: Cladding changes?

They changed the top to a more open structure because of air quality problems. (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/pdf/env_...st/17_feis.pdf page 8)

Here is a good link if you want to read more about the project: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/durst.shtml

This is how it will be




One option was to slice off the top , but it wasn`t necessary after they had done some tests.






It is true that the rear corner of the building isn`t square.

As you can see on this floor plan the north side of the building isn`t parallel with the southern side. This also affects the courtyard making it non-square.



I guess they made it non-square because it gives the balconies facing the courtyard a better view of the courtyard and the Hudson river.

oh man. if they decided to slice off the top, then this sucker is topped off and the reports about it being TO are right and no more verticality. That means the height of the building has significantly been reduced.

Since the Durst really hate this project being called a pyramid, slicing off the top would really stop people from saying that. lol.

Cutting off the top would be a big disappointment for me as I hope that is not the case.

What's wrong with a pyramid? There are some of the most amazing structures on the planet.
