This is an example of contemporary architecture working in harmony. On the left, HL23 (detail here); the right High Line 519 (519 West 23rd Street).
Here’s a vertical shot of them next to each other:
Love the futuristic amoeba shapes on the right. Amidst the distressed brick, walkway plantings and old NYC, these buildings stand apart as harmoniously weird. I love harmony and weird. Looks like something out of Blade Runner, before the constant rain.
Like I mentioned in this post, HL23 has a smaller base than top and looks entirely improbable. It could topple at any moment. You can’t deny that when you were a kid and imagined the future, the architecture of that future looked an awful lot like these two buildings. Ok. Maybe you can deny. I cannot deny that my future was inhabited by buildings that looked exactly like these, e.g., my Lego spaceships landed onto and crashed into them.
