DESCRIZIONE
 
.
Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, 425 Park Avenue, New York CityThe new building will create an enduring landmark that befits its exclusive location, and is uniquely of its time and its place.

Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, 425 Park Avenue, New York CityThe project presents an outstanding opportunity to contribute to the existing character of Park Avenue and responds to the scale and datum of the Avenue and neighbouring buildings. Clearly expressing the geometry of its structure, the tapered steel-frame tower rises to meet three shear walls that will be illuminated, adding to the vibrant New York City skyline. Its elegant facade seamlessly integrates with the innovative internal arrangement that allows for three gradated tiers of column-free floors.

Offering world-class sustainable office accommodation, the new building anticipates changing needs in the workplace with large, open spaces that encompass flexible use.

425 Park Avenue is conceived as a flexible, enduring new addition to one of New York City’s most celebrated streets. The tower’s form is a pure expression of its function, divided vertically into three distinct volumes: its base, knitted with the urban grain at street level; a recessed central section; and a slender column of premium offices at the top. Each volume dovetails dramatic triple-height sky gardens: one of which will serve as a penthouse floor, and another a first-class amenity floor for the tower’s occupants, with dining and facilities for meetings and conferences. Terraces offer views across Central Park and the prized amenity of open space in the heart of Manhattan. The social focus of the tower continues at street level, where entrance is via a dramatic triple-height atrium, with the potential for large-scale works of art.
Lord Norman Foster said
Norman Foster, Foster + Partners, 425 Park Avenue, New York City“I have a personal connection with New York, which has been a source of inspiration since my time at Yale, when the new towers on Park Avenue and its neighbourhoods were a magnet for every young architect. Seeing first-hand the works of Mies van der Rohe, Gordon Bunshaft, Eero Saarinen and Philip Johnson was tremendously exciting then – I am delighted to have this very special opportunity to design a contemporary tower to stand alongside them. Our aim is to create an exceptional building, both of its time and timeless, as well as being respectful of this context – a tower that is for the City and for the people that will work in it, setting a new standard for office design and providing an enduring landmark that befits its world-famous location.”
