Building Analysis - Neil Denari's HL23

[ 1st year Studio Project ]

The machine aesthetic is everywhere. Steel cross braces cut across the windows. Many of the glass walls are mechanized, sliding open a few inches at the touch of a button.

 

 

The allusions to a mobile culture suggest a version of the American dream straight out of the Eisenhower era. And even the building’s voyeuristic aspects can be read as a form of nostalgia: a Manhattan version of teenage lovers steaming up car windows parked on a cliff side overlooking the bright lights of the city below.
