New York, the city of skyscrapers. In the midst of this skyline one new tower is creating a furore. It is the Hearst Tower, built by the British architect Norman Foster. Norman Foster’s high-rise has been standing on the edge of Central Park since the end of 2006. The Hearst Tower rises 182 meters into the sky. A rather modest height. And soon this small-scale skyscraper may be overlooked on the dense New York skyline. If it were not for its facade! It looks like a polished diamond in the middle of the skyline. The Hearst Tower is New York’s first green skyscraper. The facade’s diagonal grid pattern, the so-called diagrid structure, consumes 20 per cent less steel than a comparable construction.
The structure is efficient - and it is also extremely elegant. “The most beautiful new skyscraper in Manhattan since 1967”, praised him the “New Yorker”.
