Hace unos días visitando el Skyscraper Museum me topé con una serie de fotos aéreas que mostraban la evolución histórica del centro de Manhattan y sus rascacielos, desde el proceso de ganarle terreno al mar, la aparición de las torres negras racionalistas, hasta la desaparición de las torres gemelas. Sin duda, es una ciudad que cambia constantemente de forma.
Hace unos días les contabamos sobre el nuevo edificio de OMA, que con su fachada estructural y volumen en volado agregará otra pieza, única por lo demás, a la evolución de Nueva York. Y ahora tenemos un nuevo rascacielos de Herzog & de Meuron, el 56 Leonard Street que con 57 pisos de altura y una compleja forma, de seguro cambiará el skyline de la ciudad como pueden ver en la panorámica siguiente.

El edificio se ubica en el sector de Tribeca, albergando 145 residencias. Cada una de estas tendrá una planta única y un espacio exterior. La suma de estos departamentos apilados hacia arriba, pensados como residencias únicas, resulta en una compleja forma llena de espacios singulares, balcones, vistas, etc. La estructura es de hormigón y fue calculada por la misma firma que calculó la Freedom Tower, el edificio insigne del nuevo World Trade Center. No hay mucha información con respecto a esto, pero esperamos saber más a medida que avance la construcción, ya que sin duda es todo un tema.

En su llegada a la calle, un tanto hermética en mi opinión, se ubicará una escultura encargada a la artista hindú Anish Kapoor, que ya ha hecho de las suyas en varios espacios públicos.
Con la construcción en proceso, se espera que esté listo para el 2010. Un edificio con mucha presencia que sin duda dará mucho que hablar.

Trata-se de mais um arranha-ceus porem este eh diferente. Trata-se de uma torre de vivendas umas em cima das outras. Por um lado acho o conceito bastante interessante no modo como foi feita a sobreposicao das respectivas unidades habitacionais como resultou no final na sua totalidade. Por outro lado questiona-se o facto da unidade da cota inferior ser semelhante ah conta superior isto porque o modo de habitar em ambas eh muito diferente. Igualizar dois modos de habitar tornou-se nos dias de hoje uma moda que nao se percebe.

Um terraco no piso 35 deve ter uma maior seguranca para quem lah habita.

Deixo aqui este topico para uma possivel conversa.

Today New York developers Izak Senbahar and Simon Elias unveiled the design of 56 Leonard Street, a 57-story condominium tower that is now under construction in Manhattan’s Tribeca Historic District. It will be the first skyscraper realized by Switzerland–based Herzog & de Meuron.
The 2001 Pritzker Prize winners Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, who founded their firm in 1978, completed their first building in New York just last year. That project, the 11-story upscale residential building 40 Bond, features a gate in which graffiti was transformed into three-dimensional ornament, and rounded green-glass mullions that evoke the cast-iron facades of the city’s industrial buildings. The design of 56 Leonard Street equally promises to upend expectations of luxury residential skyscrapers in a place still booming with them. (Homes at 56 Leonard Street will start at $3.5 million, and prices are expected to reach $33 million.) Whereas many of these buildings feature highly transparent skins or gestural facades, 56 Leonard Street joins a smaller family of buildings whose forms pose alternatives to the ubiquitous terraced setback scheme.
Constructed by rotating structural slabs from axis and comprising cantilevers, protruding balconies, and profiled slab corners, 56 Leonard Street will appear something like a Brobdingnagian stack of glass Jenga pieces or a flamboyant nod to architecture’s Metabolism movement. This irregular arrangement of blocks yields a different floor plan for each of the 145 condo units.
Above the double-height lobby—under whose shifting volumes artist Anish Kapoor will slip a giant, kidney-shaped mirrored sculpture—and a private parking garage on the second level, the building divides into several zones. The lowest, contained within four floors that the architects have dubbed “the townhouses,” is articulated to relate to the immediate context and includes amenity spaces such as a 75-foot-long pool and adjoining sundeck, film screening room, and conference and fitness centers. Two- to five-bedroom residences populate floors eight through 45, while the top nine stories, seemingly precariously stacked, contain 10 full- and two half-floor penthouses ranging in size from 3,650 to 6,380 square feet.
The homes’ material palette, which includes travertine and Thassos marble, complement the exterior glass and exposed concrete. Inside and out will relate further thanks to the travertine-paved balconies or terraces connected to each apartment. Interior elements like sculptural enamel-steel fireplace hearths that assume an apostrophe shape in section, and undulating black-lacquer kitchen islands, will provide counterpoint to the orthogonal geometry of the architecture.
Ground was broken on the project last year, and occupancy is tentatively scheduled for fall 2010.
