From Inhabitat:

Word on the street was that architect Bjarke Ingels was keeping designs for his pyramid-like residential tower for NYC a secret, but they were finally released earlier this week to much fanfare.The West 57th residential tower takes our favorite features from BIG's other residential projects like green space, dramatic sloping and sustainability and adapts them to fit the Big Apple's famed skyline.

Famed architect Bjarke Ingels has been tight lipped about a project his team has been working on for New York City and we're delighted to report that it was finally unveiled today! The West 57th residential tower is an evolutionary growth from BIG's other residential projects in Copenhagen, only at the scale of New York's famed skyline. It brings with it a huge south-west facing slope, with protected green space making up the heart of the project.
