Idk, but the top is definitely the antichrists penthouse.

It definetly has too much going on, but it doesnt look nearly as bad as it should on paper. I would love to see a return facade ornamentations, and that modern day gargoyle thing is pretty cool.

It would probably look wicked in the skyline. There really wouldn't be anything close to it in the city. Its so radically different. Its like a cracked out version of the 20's pre-war architecture, only with a 21st century twist. Sure would make heads snap up at a 102 floors.

This is a very cool vision.

In any case, I'm happy to see this site moving forward. With these kinds of air rights, and in that location, we'll probably get something pretty tall and special.

Apparently they would use some kind of robotic stone carving technology. No skilled artisans would employed other than the design and robotic engineers.

I don't have to love this design to desperately want something this unique to be built.

Combining Robotics with BIM for Architecture


At 1,492 ft high, the so-called Khaleesi Tower isn’t on the same scale as supertall skyscrapers such as the Shanghai Tower. However, it will certainly hold its own in Manhattan.

Like most towers, the main structure is constructed from glass and concrete. The stylized architectural details are to be carved out of limestone-tinted concrete panels and hydroformed sheet-bronze. These accents will be supported by structural extrusion enclosures and cantilevers made from a brass-tinted alloy.

Traditionally, this type of highly detailed carving would be a massive project for stonemasons that could span decades. Instead, Gage plans to bring the idea of Gothic cathedral-style architectural accents into this century (and to keep the project timeline in check) by carving them using computer numerical control (CNC) machining and robotics.

“Boxes clad in steel and glass are so last century,” said Gage. “Computers and robotics are giving architects access to levels of complexity [that] we haven’t had in centuries.”

There aren’t any set plans for construction yet—the tower is a design commissioned by a local developer. However, as the project progresses from design toward realization, building information modeling (BIM) will have the chance to showcase its talents at project coordination.

Gage plans to introduce the popular design and construction process into the project in order to prevent crossed wires and miscommunications—especially with the volume of detail work required for the robot-machined art pieces.

Although I would love to see ornamentation used again, this thing is just ridiculous.
