Architect: Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)
Location: New York
Completion Date: 2023
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is responsible for the latest addition to Hudson Yards, a supertall glass skyscraper named The Spiral for the ascending terraces lining its facade. The building sits on West 34th Street, straddling 10th Avenue and Hudson Boulevard near Bella Abzug Park and the northern terminus of the High Line. The latter inspired the tower’s design concept, with BIG conceiving of the tower’s continuous balconies as a vertical extension of the High Line, or, as the firm quips, “from the high line to the skyline.” The Spiral is BIG’s first supertall structure and the firm’s largest project to date.
