How hard would it have been to shorten/elongate the cladding features to steepen the diagonal lines a bit to match the roof line!?

Hello.
Sorry I did not understand what alignment you mean ... You could draw a red line in its photo?

Wow.

Most iconic building of the 21st century.

No chinese or middle east hokum, no russian gigantism, no european boredom.

New York - Best City of them all.

It will be one of the most iconic new buildings in NYC for sure, but I can't put it above Calatrava's Path station or Tower Verre or Steinway. In my opinion it is fighting for the 4th spot with 56 Leonard. But it's definitely in the conversation.

The jagged features of the north elevation actually provide the apartment inhabitants with easier views of the Hudson River--so while somewhat jarring is actually good design.

Are you just trying to boost NYC or argue architecture? You sound like your doing the former.

A perfect design for the New York waterfront. BIG has shown what great architecture looks like. They took a chance in daring to be different and it has worked out so well. Maybe this will shake a few architectural firms (and their conservative clients) out of their big-box complacency.

But BIG has such a fixation on boxes, these days
Though, I don't mind some of their conceptualizations of urban typology. I think they tend to be overly poetic and less well-executed in terms of visual implementation.

Obviously, this building is one of their better designs, to-date.
