In mid-construction, this building by Christian de Portzamparc is ending up a stunner. The structure catches the eye from many directions and is adding a jolt of contemporary flair to the Midtown Manhattan skyline. Located at the intersection of Park Avenue and East 28th Street, the crystalline angles and razor sharp edges reflect sunlight like an Urban Prism. A formidable piece of Architecture in-the-making, its contribution to the overall Form of the City is solid in nature and commanding in presence.
