“The Vertical Yacht” Skyscraper For New York City
Is this tower about to become the most iconic building in the world?
A proposed Brancusi-shape-inspired tower in Manhattan is on the way to revolutionize the world of art and architecture. After the series of ultra-slender skyscrapers under construction on the billionaires’ row, New York, near the 57th street and the 6th avenue, a new proposed skyscraper is pushing the boundaries of architecture and design even further. George Lucian, responsible for the exterior, together with Hannah Hombergen, who designed the interior, a team of young designers, propose a skyscraper design to complete the future skyline of Manhattan, trying to create probably one of the most iconic future buildings in the world. The envisioned location of the building is just a suggestion of the design team. Height: 450 meters, Floors: 60. The exterior is inspired by one of the sculptures of the world-renowned Romanian sculptor, Constantin Brancusi, whose permanent exhibition is just a couple of streets away at the MOMA NY. Covered in copper/bronze/terracotta and similar look-alike materials, the building would offer dramatic views at each sunset. It is designed to be a residential building, offering the highest level of luxury and exclusivity for future owners. The Vertical Yacht, the name of the building, is drawn from the shape of the building but also from its interiors which are inspired by the interiors of superyachts, creating a special and ultra-luxurious atmosphere and lifestyle for its residents. Each of the envisioned apartments, as seen in the interior images, would offer a 360-degree view over the skyline of New York, including Central Park. George Lucian is a designer-artist, based in Nice and Monaco, whose futuristic yacht concepts are published all over the world. Hannah Hombergen is an established interior superyacht designer, involved in the design of some of the world’s largest yachts built recently.
