Glass Tower By Jean Nouvel Rises In New York

At the intersection of 19th Street and the West Side Highway in New York, a glass and steel tower designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and his firm Ateliers Jean Nouvel is underway.

Incorporating what is billed as the most highly-engineered and technologically advanced curtain wall ever constructed in New York City, 100 11th Avenue will feature nearly 1,700 different-sized panes of colorless glass.

Fifteen feet from the building’s façade Nouvel again selects glass as his medium, this time in the form of a partially-enclosed atrium. A seven-story street wall of mullioned glass, the atrium will serve suspended gardens of ornamental vegetation and trees which will appear to float in mid-air; private indoor and outdoor terraces extending from the residences; and an open-air dining patio for the lobby restaurant.
