On the banks of the East River, a branch of the Queens Public Library addresses a call for community space in an almost exclusively residential neighborhood. The building, low and compact, takes up little ground, and makes the much used riverside par
All the spaces sit under a large sloped roof, almost a circle, that is supported by a grid of beams. The house is built into the slope for protection, with light flowing around and underneath. Space shifts horizontally and vertically through three l
The pitched roof extends 7.30 meters symmetrically covering the house’s two floors – the top one for parents, the lower one for children. Each space looks out to the lake through cutouts in the exterior cladding of corrugated cement panel with aggreg
Four features stand out in this series of cabins scattered within the woods: the folded weathering steel outside and the plywood interior, a slightly off-center stove, a large thick living roof landscaped like the surroundings, and their square windo
This six-story building is conceived as a collective place. A core of communications and kitchens/bathrooms divides the space in two. The ground level contains kitchen, dining room, a shared courtyard, and the bedrooms on the top floors...
Resting on a slab, this studio with an accessible flat roof is configured according to the needs and budget available. Right now there are three volumes, but more could be added or subtracted, or they could all even be moved to a different place...
With a form that is a pure expression of the function, the tower is divided into three stacked volumes, with the core placed to the rear. Standing alongside icons by Mies, Saarinen, and Johnson, it is the first office block to go up on Park Avenue in
The complex is built entirely with organic and biodegradable bricks made of corn stalks mixed with live fungal organisms, creating a light and porous wall that makes it possible for the pavilion to function as a bioclimatic building...
The studio was commissioned by Related Companies in 2015 to design a new residential project in Chelsea, Manhattan, at West 18th Street. The site is split in half by the High Line, the elevated public park, and called for an inventive solution that w
The commission involved designing a public centerpiece for Hudson Yards, a new 11-hectare development on Manhattan’s west side being constructed above a huge rail yard. To create something memorable, the studio decided to build a structure that visit
The location was the original Pier 54, on Manhattan’s southwest riverside, where the survivors of the Titanic disaster docked. Together with his wife Diane von Furstenberg, Barry Diller had been a key supporter of the celebrated High Line Park in New
The bold presence of this work by OLI architecture, which at first glance looks like a warehouse in the middle of private property in New York state – clad in a charred accoya timber rainscreen meant to naturally patina over time – evokes the Serra s
Luis Fernández-Galiano was twice on a scholarship program of the Fundación Juan March – in Spain in 1976-1977 and abroad in 1966-1968 – but his first lecture at the foundation headquarters took place in 2010. In the course of a decade thereafter, he
The Frick Collection will launch Frick Madison, its temporary new home on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, on March 18. Visitors will be able to experience the beloved holdings of the Frick Collection, reframed in a completely new context. Frick Madison
The largest private development in U.S. history has attracted marquee companies, but is struggling with unsold luxury condos and a mall barren of shoppers. When Hudson Yards opened in 2019 as the largest private development in American history, it as
The Rafael Viñoly-designed 432 Park Avenue supertall tower, one of the wealthiest addresses in the world, faces some significant design problems, and other luxury high-rises may share its fate. The nearly 1,400-foot tower at 432 Park Avenue, briefly
Gov. Andrew Cuomo will propose a 1,200-foot elevated pathway that will lead to the new Penn Station development, to be financed by public and private funds. For more than a decade, the High Line, an elevated park that stretches for nearly a mile and
Cities that can shrug off a disaster can still fade if their economic base—and with it their tax revenues—suffers a structural shift. Again, New York has the history to prove it...
Before the first Dutch colonists sailed through the Narrows into New York Harbor, Manhattan was still what the Lenape, who had already lived here for centuries, called Mannahatta. Times Square was a forest with a beaver pond. The Jacob K. Javits Fede
We used to be fascinated with the future and newness, we are now scared of it and comforted by nostalgia. Before, we were obsessed with crafting beautiful objects and buildings, today we are much more concerned with raising issues and creating social
