undeniably impressive but not the New York City skyline's most graceful agglomeration of high-rises--crazy to see that blue light effect reflected in Verre, tho.

It would be amazing if they lit up the cross-bracing. In a way that's similar to how the Chrysler Building illuminates the triangular windows on the crown.

Architect originally spoke about lighting that would resemble blood flowing through veins, but that was a long time ago and things tend to change

Jean Nouvel, the French starchitect behind 53 West 53rd discusses his journey designing the building. He wanted the tower to be synonymous with New York City, to be a building that couldn't easily be slipped into another skyline.

yes unfortunately.

no doubt that would have been very dramatic with the original spidery neo art nouveau/gothic design, before the height chop and streamlined redesign.
