Manhattan is a vertical city. At the base of these vertical extrusions, lost in the gridded urban fabric, we forget to look up. It’s easy to get caught up in the energy of the city, not stopping to change our perspectives. Hudson Americano aims to do just that - to challenge our expectation of Manhattan’s linear verticality with a 4-dimensional facade that shifts with light and perspective.
It works to break up the monotonous fabric of Manhattan, offering moments of serendipity in doing so. The tower’s facade projects inward and outward at specific angles to increase natural light, control heat absorption, and frame views of the city and the Hudson River. It is a stunning display of ground-breaking design, construction, and sustainability.
