57 West,Manhattan

It was the Indian Holi Celebration on 48th Street . I went to attend the Holi celebration but somehow I was unable to get the entry ticket. I thought let explore something around. The location was riverfront West Manhatten . After walking  towards north on the riverfront I found 57 West on 57th street the First major project about at the finishing  stage in Manhatten by my favourite Architect Bjarke Ingle.IMG_20160326_143419The View of 57 West a Pyramid shape tower from the South-West 
After two days of the visit of the Neighbourhood Complex, I visited BIG Bajarke Ingle Group office with my classmates. During the Bjarke Ingle office-tour the first project they explained to us was 57th West. 1View from South-West Corner 
The three corner of the building kept low with raising the north corner making a Central Courtyard. It allows maximum Sunlight to the residential units along with the View of the riverfront lawn .IMG_20160326_143753The Green lawn In front of 57th westIMG_20160326_145918Central Courtyard view from lobby
