I don't like it. This House is definitely too high.

...and to uneasy. 50 meters were okay but not 250 m (821ft. )

Insulation?

Based on the comments, the exposed concrete slab edges and soffits will remain exposed?

How are they expecting to heat the units at the top? Its bad enough to have fully glass walls, but exposed concrete soffits??

I read an article recently explaining that should the power be out during a hot summer day, these towers will become death-traps. I say: What about in the winter, if the in-floor heating fails? You'd have to wear shoes 24/7!

Incredible masterpiece!..How it comes that beauty has so many negative comments??
Can't wait the elevator to be removed as it alters the original motion that characterizes the design.

At least one person was killed on Friday morning when a crane collapsed in Lower Manhattan, the police said.

The crane came down shortly before 8:30 a.m., toppling onto Worth Street and spanning more than the entire length of a city block, officials and witnesses said.

At least three other people were injured, two of them seriously, according to the Fire Department.

Immediately after the collapse, a city official, citing preliminary information, said that at least 15 people had been injured, but as officials gathered information, the injury toll was revised.

The first call came in at 8:24 a.m., at 40 West Street, but it was changed to 57 Worth Street, a Fire Department spokesman said.

Many streets in the area have been closed, and the scene is crowded with emergency responders searching cars for anyone who might be trapped, as well as workers from utility companies to check gas lines.

New York City Transit said trains were bypassing stations at Franklin Street and Chambers Street.

Aftermath of Crane CollapseFEB. 5, 2016

Dan Vaughan, 47, an electrician, was working on the 36th floor of a nearby building when he and a colleague saw the crane shaking in the snow and wind; it crashed as workers were trying to lower it. “The wind blew it down,” Mr. Vaughan said.

A veteran of construction jobs, he said he did not know why the workers kept it upright during the storm. “That crane should have been down last night,” he said.

The crane hit part of a building and crashed onto a car, Mr. Vaughan said.

Robert Harold, a lawyer for the Legal Aid Society, was in his office on Worth Street between Church Street and West Broadway. He said heard an enormous crash, and saw the crane stretch across the north side of Worth Street.

He said he saw people trying to help a person trapped in a car, and another person lying lifeless in the street.

“It was a crashing sound,” Mr. Harold, 59, said. “It shook the building. You could feel the vibration.”

Hopefully all of the injured people gonna be okay.
But I think this was at 60 Hudson Street, not a crane of 56 Leonard.

Most buildings with exposed concrete are built like a sandwich, with 2 shells of concrete and thermal insulation in the middle. This is rather difficult to build and part of the reason why exposed concrete is expensive as hell.

Modern glass systems are great for thermal insulation. These windows usually have 3 layers of glass with either air or even a vacuum in between them. Air is a terrible heat carrier and a vacuum is basically a perfect insulation.

Exactly. I agree that the floors with exposed concrete soffits consist of a topping concrete slab over insulation over a structural concrete slab. The thick slab edges indicate so. In the regular floors, the slab edge probably has a shallow upturn to match the thickness of the slab edges at the cantilevered/exposed soffit floors.

This is wierd. I think people design buildings with exposed concrete to let it look "raw", or because of following the guidelines of international modernism to don't hide the structural and load bearing elements of a building. But in the end, they don't show anything, but build, more or less, just a fassade out of concrete, on the insulation. Which is, in my opinion, even further away from these guidelines, than, for example, a limestone fassade, because it pretends even more that it is something, it really isn't.
