#Archtober | October 17th #VIA57 "Curved section cuts somewhere between x & y": This building is not a pyramid, this building is not a pyramid, this building is not a pyramid. Anyone claiming that this BIG structure is a pyramid only dilutes the Architectural NEW prototype and representation that has been created here. And furthermore redefines what it is to be a pyramid. This frozen music muse is a structure that not only creates a 3-dimensional triangle, it also creates and provides a clear section cut somewhere in between the x and y axis, and to go further into design, the bottom wall points curve outward to the ground. The layered surface that exists within these cuts all have to be filled and so (by assumption) these panels all have to be designed and custom created. (😳) extreme detailing. Not to mention, there's a giant whole that sinks to a sunken courtyard which is perhaps the only material , wall or floor element in the entire facade of the building that rests on a familiar work & axis plane (x). This building outdoes itself and the rest of New York City in numerous ways. It's a mix between 2/3 of a pyramid and a base curved 3 dimensional triangle. Conceptually and contextually, although it's not a public space the views driving south bound on the Henry Hudson Parkway, allows for the building to unfold, from a line, a line that slowly protrudes outward starting at the base, and the buildings form curves outward & upward as the entire structure is then revealed. Not sure if this was accounted for upon design but this experience (which has almost landed me in numerous car accidents) is definitely one of the best architectural moments on New York City's west side highway and NYC as a whole. Extremely beautiful building defying...almost everything about building. #BjarkeIngels#BIG
Разводной мост в центе Лондона, что соединяет берега Темзы, был в своё время назван «венцом безвкусицы и претенциозности». Наверное, даже говорить не стоит, что в настоящее время он является одним из самых узнаваемых символов Лондона.
Думается мне, что парк Зарядье ждёт та же учесть. Набрать сотни ненавистников уже удалось.
А мне нравится этот парк 🍃.
