  • In my estimation the 'Manhattan Sky Podium' project seems to be the best out of the qualified entries. The iconic appearance of the building does not make it seem out of place. The varying levels in the building are a refreshing change from the conventional high rises in Manhattan. The fact that the aforementioned features as well as the elevated recreation public space are housed in a passive building increases the worth and credibility of this project.

    so I choose Solar Slice as the best one

  • 'Manhattan Sky Podium' project is the best entry without doubt. The unique building design is refreshing and so very workable. The appearance of the building makes it fit without disturbing view of others in the vicinity. The building is a refreshing change with the elevated recreation public spaces, connecting other buildings and giving approach to public facilities makes it merge with surronding buildings. The garden developed on terraces of all adjoining buildings as well makes it stand out from the concrete jungle of Manhattan. It gives a soothing visual effect so different from the conventional high rises in Manhattan.
