Twist and Shout! (and slope, and bend, and curve, warp….)
Recent advancements in computer software have allowed architects to explore unusual building types that could previously only be dreamt about. Today, in New York City, we are witnessing a boom in the construction of staggering new shapes and forms, many built along the emerging new “gold coast” (aka New York City’s waterfront).
Join an expert AIA guide on a beautiful Classic Harbor Line motor yacht and experience first-hand many of these remarkable new additions to New York’s iconic skyline. We’ll see buildings that fold in on themselves, buildings that lean precariously to the side, defying gravity; and buildings that sparkle and undulate like the water of the Hudson River itself. This is truly a new era of building, and New York is the best place to witness the cutting-edge innovation; here, architecture truly is an art form!
We’ll see new structures transforming the skyline, including:
