BIG: VIA West 57th

 Mg 6685

The new Bjarke Ingels' building along Manhattan's West side looks like a tall pyramid. It's a beautiful dramatic shape that breaks the monotony of the skyline. See my pictures here. The obvious question though is, what's happening on the interior? Are the interior spaces of this NY residential building equally innovative, or are they road-kill on the highway to fame? Let's not forget the "function" part of "form and function", no matter how inconvenient. The building has yet to be completed, but here's an excellent analysis of the plans by Misfits' Architecture.
