A Box. A Wall
Here is a recent image of the 55th street project, under construction. You can see some of the early designs in the On the Boards section to the right. Yes, over there >>>
The initial concept for the house began with a simple box perched on a tall wall. Additional volumes extend through the site, all of which are punctured by openings that serve to erode the boxes and connect interior and exterior spaces. The volumes at the front step down and break up to better connect to the surroundings in proportion and mass, but the project contrasts dramatically in form.
