Radical designer George Lucian has proposed Brancusi-shape-inspired tower in Manhattan. The Vertical Yacht, the name of the building, is drawn from the shape of the building but also from its interiors which are inspired from the interiors of super yachts, creating a special and ultra-luxurious atmosphere and lifestyle for its residents.
The new proposed skyscraper, designed to push the boundaries of architecture and design, is envisioned to join the ultra-slender skyscrapers under construction on the billionaires’ row in New York.
George Lucian is responsible for the exterior, together with Hannah Hombergen, who designed the interior, and a team of young designers, propose a skyscraper design to complete the future skyline of Manhattan. 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.
The envisioned building will have a height of 450 metres, and will have 60 floors.Covered in copper, bronze and terracotta, 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 the future owners.
Each of the envisioned apartments, as seen in the interior images, would offer a 360-degree view over the skyline of New York, including the Central Park.
