Behind the Facade

New, 1 comment

The 151-unit condo tower currently rising at 50 West Street is distinct for its curved glass facade, and the Times sat down with the gentleman responsible for them (besides architect Helmut Jahn). "A project manager whose speciality is curtain walls"—an accolade if there ever was one—Daniele Petroni shares his undying love for the material: "The views it makes possible translate into architecture having an open mind. Looking through this glass, your perspective instantly widens. It's magical. And it's gentle on the eyes." [NYT; previously]
