Last Month, IGS featured Jean Nouvel’s latest New York Skyscraper in the article 53W53: Manhattan’s Modern Masterpiece. A gracefully tapered, 1,050-foot-high tower rising above The Museum of Modern Art, 53W53 represents a bold artistic and technical achievement by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel. The Real Deal recently interviewed the architect to talk about his new project, and how he predicts it will transform the city’s iconic skyline.
“An architecture exists within an architecture. That’s what it is made for. A worldwide catastrophe today is the number of buildings that are parachuted because they were preconceived. Offices, housing, shopping malls all look the same.”
