NYC Sculptural Skyscraper Design by Mark Foster Gage
The architect was tapped by real estate developers to envision a new and exciting addition to 57th street - currently a hotbed of architectural innovation. Gage's vision is what you see below - an ornate and ambitious structure which heralds to a more opulent and sophisticated time for his trade. It's futuristic symmetry conjures up a touch of Geiger and Kubrick - combining the organic flair of the former with the effective simplicity of the latter. Elaborate reliefs are carved into the facade, reaching towards towering crescendo at its sky lobby on the 64th floor, where the buildings wings unfurl to reveal a two story ballroom, with some truly spectacular views of the city. Like it or not, one must admit it is a bold design!
