432 Park Ave will always look like a building shell with that disgraceful bare concrete "facade".

Shame on you, Vinoly. You screwed an important portion of Manhattan's skyline.

That is exactly your problem. Your taste is on a 16-year old girl's level, who only likes 'cute', colorful, shiny and painfully obvious beauty

Bang, boomerang turns 180 once again

Clearly people who adore well executed classical, organic or Art Deco architecture are all 16 year old girls, it's blatantly obvious. Like people who love a classy suit with Oxford shoes, or a good Mozart concert. Actually architecture is not even that much of a "grown people thing" like the last mentioned.

Hey, you're totally right. Classical architecture is for kids - and everyone who could retain that enthusiasm. Because kids still got true beauty ingrained, while some adults obviously were re-educated (...brainwashed *duck*) to ignore or even despise natural beauty.

The world just can't be wrong about a building like this.

Dexter- can you please just put Erbse on ignore like so many of us already have and move on from this childish conversation? It's spoiling an otherwise great thread.

Clearly some people here root for a discussion forum without any discussions. It's hilarious, isn't it.

Really, there's thousands of construction/real estate blogs (like Curbed NY), for people who just want to consume, as opposed to participate and discuss, who just want the information and pics wash over them.

Revealed: 217 West 57th Street, Official Renderings for World’s Future Tallest Residential Building










The spire is resolutely architectural:

This.

It's ok to discuss folks, just be respectful of others...

The spire on Nordstrom is terrible. Zero elegance befitting its Central Park visibility. Typical Extell.

I was expecting worse so for me this is win. The fairly blandular box design of the tower doesn't lend itself to any wildly creative spires.

This is from June 2014, but worth a post, really nice list:

42 Star Projects Transforming Architecture in New York City (Curbed NY)



(Though I'm really not a fan of the "starchitecture" label, quality matters more than names, as various examples in the link show)

Really liking Nordstrom, will be a good counterweight to 432 Park:

And here, with 111 W57, 220 CPS, and Verre... It's crazy how all of these are currently U/C (and others not shown as well)

Unfortunately I have to get to work, so only had time to slap in Steinway from my earlier Photoshop job, but I will try to do Verre, 220 and the others tonight.

And now I'm late for work. But I couldn't help myself.

Nordstrom would profit from a more elegant spire. Other than that, it's a solid design thanks to setbacks and getting proportions right.
