Bjarke Ingels' Pyramid of Apartments Continues to Rise

New, 1 comment

Bjarke Ingels' West 57th Street pyramid only gets more exciting, and more pyramid-like, the higher it grows. A tipster sent in the above picture, taken from the West Side Highway earlier this week, and the eventual apartment building appears to have added a couple floors since the last time we checked in. "[The pyramid] is a cone that has been subtracted from a cube," Ingels explained to Curbed DC last month. "It's this weird combination of something that is actually straight lines that then describes these curving geometries. Maybe we do have certain obsessions we can't escape no matter what we do." That's certainly true, and for us that obsession is looking at construction pictures of this crazy building.
