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 favorite landmark on the New York skyline. Designed by Rafael Viñoly, the building is a perfect square, with sides of 93 feet, and this regularity is echoed by the 10-foot by 10-foot 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.
