Tadao Ando, Hon. FAIA, revealed the exterior designs for his Manhattan apartment building. Known for his thoughtful use of concrete and glass, this seven-story development is no exception. The façade comprises ample sections of floor-to-ceiling windows, flanked in galvanized steel and the Japanese architect’s signature use of poured concrete. One of the most striking features is the entrance hall, which has a water wall, with the fluid movements emphasized by grooved wall panels and natural light seeping through carved slits that cast an animation on the concrete surfaces.
