56 Leonard Street, New York / Herzog & de Meuron


This 57-story residential in the Tribeca area will house 145 residences, each one with its own unique floor plan and private outdoor space. This typology makes the building look like a stack of houses, away from the traditional skyscraper form. I wonder how the concrete structure works on this building, which was done by consultant firm WSP Cantor Seinuk (who also worked on the Freedom Tower).

The building features several interior design details done by Herzog & de Meuron, and also a sculpture comissioned to artist Anish Kapoor.
