Another day, another reveal of new renderings for pricey Midtown behemoth One57. International Business Times sits down with the building's architect, Christian de Portzamparc, and while de Portzamparc was distracted by questions, grabbed some renderings from his filing cabinets. The architect sees the building as "a tribute to the great scene of Central Park." And also, apparently, as a practical structure, since he tells IB Times that "every gesture, every shape must be justified by various reasons that would reinforce their reason to be, their use, and will give more sense to their beauty." Wonder if he finds the pricing similarly justified?
