Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel has collaborated with acclaimed interior achitect Thierry Despont to create 53W53 (www.53w53.com) in Manhattan

Located in Midtown next to Fifth Avenue and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the 1,050 sq-ft high 53W53 residence by Pritzker Prize-winner Jean Nouvel and interior achitect Thierry Despont redefines Manhattan’s skyline and the city’s high living.

A distinctive tower with tapered silhouette of gently angled surfaces, the 82-storey structure overlooks Central Park with a panoramic view. It features a robust yet delicate network of angular concrete elements in an efficient structural system. Each segment follows its own geometry, and the overall tower reaches great height with minimum number of interior columns.
