Located in Manhattan, frank gehry’s first ever residential structure is now complete. The unit entitled ‘new york by gehry‘ (formally known as ‘Beekman tower’), is the tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere.
Undulating panels of stainless steel clad the structure, creating a dynamic exterior that transforms with light as the day progresses. The unit – with gehry’s iconic use of form and material – has a sense of constant movement and appears as though it is blowing in the wind. The rippling form is evident on the inside as well where private units feature curving walls and windows that extend into the sky.
