my 1st big semestral project at the new school: 120 metres high skycraper for Astor Place, Manhattan (near to Soho, almost next to the new Sanaa's New Museum of Contemporary Art).
the main idea is to create a "vertical city in a city", a shell for inside houses, skycraper with functional parks, shops and streets, a working organism. to allow to build building inside the building, even by other architects. every window is 15 or 30 metres high and there's a park and house(s) inside, with very narrow streets between them, going to the inside vertical communication. there is so much to say about it, it took me hundreds of hours of work, designing, thinking it over and over again, but I guess nobody is really reading these comments too closely anyway, especially not when it's too long, so simply if you want to know anything more about it, ask me. Otherwise, just try to enjoy the shape and exterior design, take it as a sculpture in the city, only knowing it's also functional.
