Solar Carve

New York, USA

Studio Gang designed a very special building on the edge of Manhattan, between High Line Park and the Hudson River. The design is based on the position of the sun, which changes over the course of the day. The shape of the high-rise is characterized by the angles at which the sun’s rays strike its surface. The faceted, gem-like building envelope creates three-dimensional highlights with its slanted, polygon-shaped glass surfaces. The special facade design brings plenty of daylight into the streets as well as into the interior. It also prevents the rooms from heating up. The lower base of the LEED Gold certified skyscraper was clad with concrete skin panels, which blend harmoniously into the overall picture.
