Surface Tension
Jean Nouvel and the art of the façade.


by Paul Goldberger
November 23, 2009
Quote:
...Nouvel is probably best known in New York for a building that he has not built, or, at least, not yet—an eighty-two-story tower planned for a tiny site on West Fifty-third Street beside the Museum of Modern Art.

As originally designed, the tower was to rise to twelve hundred and fifty feet, the height of the Empire State Building. But the planned building was anything but bulky: around a slender glass tower, Nouvel wrapped a spire of steel bracing that extends beyond the building’s floors to form a needle-thin peak.

The building’s neighbors were aghast, viewing it as an unnecessary intrusion into an already overcrowded part of midtown Manhattan. In October, the City Planning Commission approved the project but insisted that Nouvel take off two hundred feet, removing the top of the steel frame. It’s a bad compromise: the tower, still too big to satisfy the neighbors, is also a lot less graceful.

The chairman of the commission, Amanda Burden, said she didn’t feel that Nouvel’s top was good enough to be in the company of the Empire State Building, so the commission decided that it shouldn’t challenge that building’s preëminence in the midtown skyline.

The commission wanted, in effect, to landmark the sky. Kurt Vonnegut once described Manhattan, ironically, as “Skyscraper National Park,” and it’s as if the commission had taken him literally. The trouble is that it’s impossible to keep a Nouvel design and eviscerate it at the same time. Nouvel’s designs, for all their bombast, are conceived as a whole. You can take them or leave them, but tone them down and you’ve missed the point.

Good news indeed, I'm sure there will be a construction boom in New York, and in some other cities around the country, starting in a few years. I think one was about to take off before the recession hit, but this time it should be for real.

You are incorrect. 157 west 57th street has a 1083 ft tower under foundation work.

SSP has it listed as 953 feet/73 floors. Some say it will be 80 floors/1083 ft. We don't know yet. We haven't even seen a render.

There's no rendering / public available plan - yet they already started working on the construction side?

How the heck would that even be possible in any developed country?

Via the magic of capitalism. Others have gone into more detail on the subject here.

According to the architect (who has already finished but not released the design) it is 1083 feet.

But the architect stated that the final height for the building is 1083ft. Check out the thread on SSC.
