432 Park Avenue, New York

Apart from its extreme slenderness, it is perhaps the simplicity of 432 Park Avenue’s structure that has already made it a favourite landmark on the skyline. Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the building is a perfect square, with sides of 28.5m, and this regularity is echoed by the 3m x 3m windows punched into the frame, six on each side of the building.

It’s similar to making holes in the sail of a boat… We flow with the wind.
