Yeah that's why I love it, alright they built strange buildings at you either like it or not but it's far from the city historical center so no one complains
Pic related you can see the orange cube close to a green one on the left background of this pic, the city historical center is near the cathedral you can see far

The thing I love about that building is it doesn't look brand new. It blends in and for all you know it could have been there for 30 years.

Rectangular and angular buildings just work for New York. I hate all these architects trying to force curves and roundness into the skyline.

So... instead of that they just went "Nah fuck it, let's improvise as we go" and we got munkkivuori/haaga as it is today?
>>
>>53818682
Yeahp. You'll notice the area around the bridge to Meilahti is actually layout-wise taken from this plan, but even that was only built in the 1930s. Then the War happened, so no building, and after the War it was a whole new (modernist) world as far as city planning went.

also, this being from 1911, the style would've been Jugend or the type of early modernism that the main railway station is. Imagine that.

>>53818788
These days it looks more like "Just fuck my shit up" especially if you compare it to northern parts of Helsinki.

The individual towers look good, clustered together they look good, but on the skyline it all looks lonely and out of place. It should be more vast horizontally, with a better build-up. It's like they only bothered building a small slice of a full skyline. Otherwise top-notch futuristic designs.

You need some boxes. Not every building can be a centrepiece.

I'm ok with boxes just it's that 432 is overly minimalistic

I guess with all these projects going on in NYC it will reassure itself as top 1, the most recognizeable and iconic skyline in the world

though it won't have any megatall sadly

What the fuck. Is the the final design? As a structural engineer I really wonder how they're planning to compensate for wind loads in such a slender building.
Any details on the construction?
>>
>>53825237
>Is the the final design?
Yep. 1:23 width to height ratio.

I guess just the wind break floors, combined with the tuned mass damper in good enough. Modern concrete being amazing and all that.

They may need more than they showed in their diagram, but dampers are incredible with wind control. The Taipei 101 can withstand incredible typhoon winds and has no insulation from other buildings. If they evenly distribute them, they can even compensate for the thinness of the building. But yeah, modern concrete'll probably be the biggest factor.
