The website for the Charlie Rose Show has posted the interview with architect Steven Holl in which he first reveals plans for his Towering S skyscraper planned for the 30th Street spur of the High Line. (Two crispy fresh screengrabs above.) In the interview, Holl relates that the sway of the building is inspired by the High Line: "The idea is taking the movement of the High Line and moving it vertical so it picks up the western sun." And to our conclusion that the planned bridge to the High Line bodes well for the survival of the upper third of the elevated track, Holl is somewhat more circumspect: "This is a great piece of hope to save the north spur."
