Yes because horizontally undulating "weaving" geometric facades are significantly less "arbitrary" than vertically undulating "weaving" facades...

seriously? you don't see the difference? the balconies and the accompanying poured-in-place concrete shear walls/columns are a direct result of the structural solution and a desire to sculpt/separate the balconies... I don't know if Jeanne has any other absurd rationalization, but the basis of the form generation is quite clear...

And that's different from a "structural solution" designed to create 8 corners instead of 4 with multiple exciting viewing angles from those corners how? The goal with all of her buildings from the beginning has been to create awesome, extremely marketable, living spaces. Just because this one is tilted on it's side instead of vertical doesn't mean they are any different. It would have been much more economical here to simply have a normal structural solution and then have cantilevered triangles extending from it to create the balconies. It would have looked more or less the same, but Gang is doing the sheer slabs instead because it is "cooler" not because it is not possible to achieve the same thing with a boring box of building.

this is so tiresome, Lou, read my earlier posts of the Wanda project and all of your issues are addressed... clearly you are not an architect...

Was at the Promontory Sunday night for a show, that is a great space and we had a great time there. Was very impressed with Hyde Park. Except for going to the Museum of S&I, I've never just hung out in HP before.

The host of the show starting off saying "If you've never been to Hyde Park before, you're late". Yep, sorry about that.

I hope this becomes a common scenario with other people from across town! (I wouldn't mind hanging out there more often myself, but I am in California.)

Right now the site would be in a 'site prep' mode. We normally don't declare structures under construction until caissons are being drilled or piles are being driven.

Looks like Michels Construction, who did the caissons at River Point, will be handling the job here.
