Glass bridge links the American Copper Buildings.

The familiar look of the New York skyline has now been broken up by an eye-catching pair of skyscrapers on the banks of the East River.

The copper-clad, dual residential towers are reminiscent of a couple dancing, leaning back slightly and linked together for eternity by a bridge with a metallic reflecting finish.

Together, the American Copper Buildings in Manhattan form an iconographic structure that combines sophisticated architectural design with engineering solutions of the highest standard.

The central design element is the Skybridge, which goes beyond a purely aesthetic function as it links the utilities of both towers and is integrated into the structure’s static design.

The glass for the 100 metre high Skybridge for this extraordinary project was created by Glas Trösch which developed a complex, double insulating glass with an internally laminated, metallic web to give a glossy finish.
