Considered as one of the most acclaimed architects of the 21st century, Frank Gehry has created the tallest residential tower in New York City’s history. Standing at 142 meters with 76 storeys, this skyscraper resides in Lower Manhattan. Dramatically named as ‘New York by Gerhy,’ this new building is meant to shake and challenge the city’s iconic skyline, perhaps spurring on a greater change. The residences are set on a six-storey base with an elementary school and hospital services as well. Realized with computer modelling programs that Gehry used to design the Guggenheim Museum, this massive structure was made with a green-aesthetic in mind to lower costs and wastage.
