greaseproof architecture since 2000


The poor folks living in a sundrenched apartment block across the road from MOMA in New York are a bit riled about the museum’s proposal to build a tower the height of the Empire State Building in its service yard. In the olden days this would have resulted in letters to council and getting Geoffrey Rush involved. Nowadays you make a movie about it.

I think NO2MOMA should be more worried about structural collapse than shadows, judging from their rendering of the tower.

Apparently that is pretty much what Nouvel’s building looks like. It now has conditional approval. Conditional on them lopping 200ft off.
