Project DescriptionFrom the AIA:
Situated in Chelsea, Manhattan adjacent to the high line, the building is fully integrated into a walkable, human scale neighborhood with ample access to alternative modes of transportation. The environmental strategy for this building employs geometry as the primary tool in creating comfortable, well lit office environments.
From the jury:
This project stands out for its fantastical aesthetics and strong graphic capabilities. There is an impressive analysis of resources and a careful consideration of the envelope. It sparks a pertinent conversation about performance and parametrics. The design is energizing and inspiring for its attempt to provide a performative backbone to the geometric exercise of parametric design. The intention to derive the geometry by the desire to regulate light and solar gain should be lauded.
