Such a shame they had to demolish a historic building to build that...

This building isn't bad at all, but the top looks a bit strange for me. Although I prefer the historical building.

WHUT @41 West 57th Street | Eagle Tower

Whoa, wth, steampunk to the max!

I don't even know what to say. Like it's just broke out of some utopian fantasy world:














by: Mark Foster Gage Architects


Looks like someone took my appeals for a "continuation and evolution of Beaux Arts, Art Deco and Expressionism" quite serious!
This could be revolutionary in many ways. It's super-eclectic, but well. Just wow.

at first glance it looks like something a divine monarch would have constructed for themselves. I hope SHVO uses this design for his supposed 100 story central park tower.

That would be majestic, my guess is that it is only a concept. Literaly a new style which within 5 years will be present in every single global city on the planet.

No shite, I've been shedding tears looking at this website.
The opulent details. The abundant forms. The brave boldness.

My architecture moment of this year, ah well, this decade perhaps...


I'm opening a thread at the architecture forum, under tears...

That building is way too much, if it were drastically simplified but still maintained it's deco appeal and were just a bit fatter, I would like it but the building just doesn't fit it's surroundings...

RE: Eagle Tower - 41 West 57th St

Quote:
...While it turns out that the project will not be moving forward, as confirmed by building architect Mark Foster Gage, the design is still worth checking out. The supertall building is adorned with sculptures of eagles and gold paneling, and appears to be topped by a gold watchtower with a golden clock (or a bell depending on how you see it.) It only gets better from there.

.....

While this design—an homage to Art Deco architecture—won't be rising on the site, the fact that the plan exists suggests that someone might be interested in bringing another supertall tower to Central Park South.

I love it. This is what Ny needs, and what every skyscraper/modern built world city needs: towers with abundant facade artistry. Death to the multitudes of dull corporate mind-numbing glass boxes that have polluted everywhere and taken the fun and humanity out of the visual aspects of modern cities. People adore the ornate facades of Paris, Venice and Prague for a reason. A modern take on the visually stimulating ornate wonders of the past is due people. there needs to be a complete revolution, a turning away from the heartless efficiency started by the awful 20th century thinkers like Corbusier, etc. people like him, and like Robert Moses, didn't care about people in the city at all. iNstead, treated the city like an engineering project where efficiency came first over emotional satisfaction.
