In collaboration with the award winning exterior designer George Lucian, together as a team of young designers, we propose a skyscraper design to complete the future skyline of Manhattan.
After the series of ultra-slender skyscrapers under construction on the billionaires’ row, New York, near the 57th street and 6th avenue, a new proposed skyscraper is pushing the boundaries of architecture and design even further.
The exterior is inspired by one of the sculptures of the famous Romanian world renown sculptor, Constantin Brancusi, whose permanent exhibition is just a couple of streets away at the MOMA NY. Covered in copper/bronze/terracotta and similar look alike materials, the building would offer dramatic views at each sunset. It is designed to be a residential building, offering the highest level of luxury and exclusivity for the future owners.
“The Vertical Yacht”, the name of the building, is drawn from the shape of the building but also from its interiors that are inspired from the interiors of super yachts, creating a special and ultra-luxurious atmosphere and lifestyle for its residents. Each of the envisioned apartments, as seen in the interior images, would offer a 360-degree view
over the skyline of New York, including the Central Park.
Height: 450 meters, Floors: 60
