Centre Point Tower in London, England by Conran and Partners

Monday, June 18th, 2018

Article source: Conran and Partners

Centre Point Tower was designed by Richard Seifert, an architect originally from Switzerland, who had settled in London as a young boy. It stands between New Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road, and emerged from the vibrant and liberating social change affecting London in the 1960s.

A grey and downbeat post-war city was starting to morph into the bright and confident world capital of style. Centre Point Tower, in its final design, was a clear, tangible representation of this thrusting reinvention of the city. With its imposing height and thoroughly modern materiality, it seemed to stand for a new generation of Londoners and embodied their collective creative energies.

265 West 45th Street in New York by RB Systems

Wednesday, June 6th, 2018

Article source: v2com

The project explores a novel and captivating tower typology which emerged in New York in the last years — “The New York’s Super Slender”. Located on a small, currently vacant site on West 45th St which footprint measures at approx. 30x30m only, the tower rises to 400 m in height, and provides modern, ergonomic, sustainable office spaces for multi-floor corporate tenants. The project is another take on a path which skyscraper design will likely be following in the coming years, to meet extreme challenges of constrained and dense city centers, with their shortage of big vacant lots, yet ever-growing demand for new properties.

Helix Residential Tower Vancouver in Columbia by MA2

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Article source: MA2

The concept proposal is a residential tower that aggregates, turns, shifts, connects and radiates across the skyline of Vancouver. The tower is a submission for iconic tower designs for sky-high living and dynamic structures.  By having a residential tower that rotates as its ascending vertically with a bifurcation connection, its gives the tower new possibilities in its performance and iconic presence. Helix formations and spiral lattice structures influence the tectonic shifting and architectural logic for structural and visual resilience. Tower connections with multipurpose spaces and clubhouses add to the dynamic ambiance of sky-high living and poly-valiant architectural expressions.  The tower design was conceptualized to be an expression that can position itself in a multiple selection of sites across the globe giving it a universal strategy and resonance.
