That note in the window is so cool. Someone knows they're watching an icon rise across the street and DEAR LORD I COULD NEVER DO THAT JOB!

This building is rising faster than I thought.
Well done!

I love this building. Perfect that it's connected to the MoMA and part of its expansion. As this, 111 W 57th St., 9 Dekalb, 45 Broad, and a few other buildings going up in NY now ARE actually art. I think we've moved back into another golden age for buildings.

^ Definitely a great era of skyscraper building. I don't know what they'll refer to this time as in the future, but we get to live through it and watch these beauties rise.

So the irony is 53w53rd will soon block out 111 w 57th. Given the distance, I wonder if 111 w 57th will emerge above 53w53rd.

It is not going to block it out from most angles or vantage points. But, yes, as you indicate, 111 W. 57th Street is nearly 400 feet taller. So, the crown and top of the building will be visible above 53w53 even if there are viewpoints 53w53 does 'block' the rest of the building from view.

Although the façade is looking nice because glass and metal panels appear in same sleek flat planes (without any 3D effect, which is better here), I would've loved some dark granite stone instead of metal.

Some texture like these.

It sort of looks like marble, but it's more resistant and durable to an exterior façade.
It's also quite a bit less expensive than marble, I believe.
Granite really offers great properties.
But I guess you cannot ask for too much (yet).

Well, just some idea on the fly for the time when they renovate it...

It won't. But depending on where you are standing on that deck, it could appear something like this...

Lol, ok. Wait...
We have a couple of examples of granite claddings over la Défense.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_Areva

This is called Areva tower, named after the corporation still renting or owning it. That was definitely on my mind when I suggested dark granite the other day.
This is one of the few best skyscraper claddings in my country. Wondering why Jean Nouvel wouldn't pick the same option for his signature tower over there.
Obviously, there must be some reason for metal. Maybe Nouvel himself likes metal better.

The arch of la Défense was formerly cladded in white marble, which must've been somewhat costly. And it was wrong, not smart. Guess what, 25 years after the opening of the arch, these silly marble panels were coming down, threatening to crush people walking by.
So they just recladded it in white granite lately. It looks pretty much the same as former marble, except it's cleaner and will be more reliable from now.

Granite offers various colors.


https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_C%C3%A8dre

This is called Cèdre, still over la Défense. I think it was designed by the same architect as that of the black Areva thing. The guy probably felt love for granite, and was damn right in my opinion. His towers look 1st-class seen in person.

The skyscraper called "Granite" in la Défense is actually entirely cladded in glass, so the name is confusing.
The only 3 examples I know of are those mentioned here.
That's it. This is just sharing thoughts, huh. I could have shut my mouth and left you clueless about that thing, but that would be mean and unfair.

Again, if some architects happen to read this thing, granite is certainly a great option.

^The IBM tower on madison avenue is the reference you're looking for.

But stone is not the right fit on this building, (And probably prohibitively expensive considering all the irregular pieces required)

And when it does come time to redo this facade it'l probably be a landmarked building.

I would push a rabbi, a priest, an imam, and a preacher down 5 flights of stairs if we could get something like this on the last parcel of available land on our statehouse square.

Areva's building is older and one single foot taller, which is funny. It is the bloody granite reference, worldwide.

Whatever, this façade looks perfect in this picture.



I'll see the building completed for myself, anyway.
This is a great pride to me, as it is by a most influential architect from my country.
French savoir-faire here, huh!
