Most have proved controversial, often because of their shading and overpowering dominance. This intriguing skyscraper design stands out against the typical residential skyscrapers in New York.

The supertall skyscraper design has a sculptural facade of limestone-tinted concrete panels, hydro-formed sheet bronze, and brass extrusions. Each unit would have its own ornate balcony.

The 64th floor would house a two-story ballroom, a restaurant, retail spaces, a lobby, and four cantilevered balconies.
This Manhattan supertall building has also been nicknamed “Michelangelo tower” due to its dramatic skin. The facades would be carved using computer numerically controlled technology.

The tower’s design would stand in stark contrast to other supertall buildings in New York. Architect Mark Foster Gage describes these as:

“tall boxes covered in a selected glass curtain wall products. Boxes clad in steel and glass are so last century. Computers and robotics are giving architects access to levels of complexity and more sculptural forms and details we haven’t had in centuries—and my office is hopefully leading the march into these more detailed, complex, and beautiful territories of the 21st century.”

Gage is assistant dean at the Yale University School of Architecture. He founded his architecture studio in 2014. Previously he was founding partner of Gage / Clemenceau Architects from 2001 to 2013.
