So many beloved architectural styles throughout history have fallen by the wayside out of sheer practicality as much as changing trends and cultures. I'd love to see a renaissance of Gothic, Mudejar, Art Nouveau and many others. And since NYC really has taken the reins as an architectural playground, with developers competing for those ultralux dollars through aesthetics and materiality (see Steinway and the Fitzroy), this seems as likely a place as any for the practice to take off.

But I also have to address the actual Gage design, which is just the worst kind of kitchen-sink maximalism, and a total eyesore. Sure it's a showcase of what the technology could allow for and thankfully it's not a real proposal... But it gets me worried about the possibility that any developer with a goofy idea can have it realized in building form.

I wonder if the advent of 3D printing is going to wind up creating a new branch of architecture -- the architect/sculptor. As long as there is someone out there with the taste and restraint to utilize the technology without turning every building into a gaudy mess, we could really be headed into an incredible time.

Exactly my thoughts, Marshall! The possibilities of new tech may be used wisely for architecture. Robotic construction could also allow for yet unknown prospects.

We'll likely see gaudy and very strange buildings, too - but I'm not any more worried about this than about all the bland and boring faceless boxes and dildos or the disproportional deconstructivist shite going up everywhere.

Downtown Brooklyn Getting Another Tall-ish Tower



Quote:
A year after it was announced that Downtown Brooklyn was getting yet another residential tower, renders have been unveiled for the 25-story building set to rise at 210 Livingston Street, Real Estate Weekly reports.

The building will have a total of 368 apartments divided into studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms. Seventy-four, which is about 20 percent of all available units, will be affordable.

The project is being developed by Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates, the latter of which recently worked on the conversion of the art deco landmark, 70 Pine Street.

Bjarke Ingels's High Line Project Will Have Offices, Not a Hotel



Quote:
There are some changes afoot at Bjarke Ingels Group's geometric High Line-adjacent development on West 17th Street. Developer HFZ has filed new plans for the four-story base of the two-towered building, which spans 242,750 square feet. (The entire project comes in at 800,000 square feet.) The original proposal was to build out retail space along the 50,000-square-foot ground floor, with a 150,000-square-foot hotel on the next three floors. But according to The Real Deal, the hotel has been replaced and now the base will hold retail and office space.

Plans for the building—which is located at 76 Eleventh Avenue, with an alternate address of 501 West 17th Street—show retail taking up the cellar level, first, and part of the second through fourth floors. Office space will also occupy the second through fourth floors.

Hudson Yards's Tallest Tower Begins Its 1,287-Foot Ascent



Quote:
The tallest of the Hudson Yards buildings has finally taken off and the structure is already a few floors above the ground, photos by Tectonic have revealed. When complete, the building, designed by Kohn Pendersen Fox, will stand almost 1,300 feet tall and have 90 stories. The building won't be ready for occupancy until 2019, but developers, Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group have already found a tenant for the commercial building. Investment firm, KKR & Co. will occupy the top 10 floors of the building, a space totaling 343,000 square feet.

Happy doesn't begin to explain how I feel about this. The Brooklyn Navy Yard remains the area with the largest potential for redevelopment in NYC, I believe. I'd love to see it expanded into a neighborhood, with residential and office space. But the studios are astounding news, any push to help the media industry here further thrive is hugely welcome.
