Nouvel completes 23-storey tower in New York City

  • 1 Comment

The architect behind this year’s Serpentine Pavilion in London, Jean Nouvel, has completed his second Manhattan tower

Known as 100 11th Avenue, the 23-storey residential building sits alongside the Hudson River.

The south and west facades, which face Frank Gehry’s IAC Building, comprise 1,700 glass panes of different sizes, each set at a unique angle and torque. The north and east facades are clad in black brick, referencing the masonry used in local industrial architecture. Nouvel’s 15-storey 40 Mercer Street was completed in 2008, and a 75-storey tower, which will be the third and tallest building in New York City by the Pritzker Prize winner, was approved by the city council last year.

  • What is it? Can't believe you've published an article that doesn't mention the function of the building. Am I missing something obvious?
