This is a visionary concept. The site itself is prime for a super tall, and this is just a way for the architect to test the waters.

This will be the most beautiful building in New York if they build it. It will be so interesting to see the construction process.

What a repulsive steaming pile if turd. Unless it was designed by a 12 year old Lord if the Rings fan, it's unacceptable. If it indeed was, then it's a weak D minus...

Most of the exterior will be 3D printed (aside from the glass), so its more futuristic than u think.. and n real life.. something like this will be very iconic to the city and might over shadow all the other towers in NY since they're mostly short and boxed-like... i'd love to see it built one day

but if i were to design this thing i'll have a simple base and make its more complex as u get close to the top..

The epitome of tacky, the climax of distaste. What a mess...

What's this? Actual architecture? In a a skyscraper??? Ew, put it away, I want my glass boxes and elongated bars of soap back! Or try another spiral shaped scraper for the 18th billionth time, that's a good trick!

Personally, I love it.
But architecture is art-chitecture. It's art. Everyone has their tastes and preferences regarding it.

But this is just a glass box too, although an excessively ornamented one. There is a difference between ornamentation and architecture

This beauty will fit better in Dubai ... Hopefully it is more than a concept

1. What is the chance there really will be a supertall here?
2. What is the chance that 123 W 57 will be a supertall?
3. 31 W 57 is currently listed as 200m+ on the forums, how tall could it go?
4. Any other potential plots on that stretch of W 57?
