The project skilfully deals with Manhattan’s building regulations turning them to prevent the massive reflected presence of the IBM tower opposite, while setting a landmark for the city and emphasizing LVMH’ s prestigious identity.

The tower soars up to the sky playing with prismatic vertical volumes made out of various types of glass.
