The glass is getting pretty high up. Looks like they may be working on the more complicated top now.

Yes, now the more ‘organic’ looking form factor comes into view. The work of this firm always has what I would describe as an organic or ‘free form’ flowing aspect; despite the fact that beams, bricks, lumber, and all building components are squarish, or rectilinear.

I would imagine it is quite tricky (and more expensive) to add all those ‘curvy’ organic features. The end result with this firm is never cookie-cutter, or symmetrical: always amorphous and beautiful.

IMHO, one of the most talented Architecture firms in the world. Loving this project. :heart_eyes:

Here is another one of their many masterpieces…

Construction of the crown started about 3ish weeks ago. The reconfiguration of the formwork to accomodate the mechanical penthouse and slanted/jagged parapet structure is probably what is making work seem so long on “just” the crown the same as it did for the sloping transition from the podium to tower transition.

That museum is not by Snøhetta, it’s by a local Korean Architect, BCHO Partners.

OH, you are correct. Here is a couple more - also beautiful architecture, AND surely by Snohetta.

… by Snohetta.

Yes those are both by Snøhetta :+1:t2: though the first one is just a render of the actual completed project.

I keep playing the lottery so I can buy a condo in this building. Just can’t figure why it is not working! :roll_eyes:
