Frank Gehry’s over-scaled cornice surprised the conservative town of Boston when he renovated the Tower Records building with Schwartz/Silver back in 1989. His penthouses in New York now take their sculptural cues from the experience of exaggerated bay windows where a person can step beyond the facade of a building. What is interesting is the promotional video for the new penthouses uses tilt shift views which imply that your view 870 feet up from the tallest residential building in the U.S. will make New York seem like your personal playset.
