New York Tomorrow Skyscraper Proposal

New York Tomorrow, submitted by architects from the firm Fundamental, recently received runner-up honors in Metropolis Magazine’s Living Cities Competition.  The magazine’s competition is open to students and professionals and calls for proposals for multi-use residential towers for the 21st century. The building lot for New York Tomorrow is located on East 68th Street in New York City. The design overcomes the lot’s small site size (18 by 70 feet) by cantilevering the tower’s lobby out over a neighboring building. The design relies on revolutionary structural design technology and a unique multi-purpose space to draw in potential residents.
