NEW YORK magazine, VIA

The VIA building designed by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels on the westside highway at 57th st is nearing completion with doors set to open this spring.  CG had the pleasure of taking a tour with Mr Ingels, his firm and Mr Douglas Durst who has developed the site over the past 5 years.

Some trivia: The land is leased, not owned by the Durst family, all the units are rentals, the courtyard dimensions are a direct scale of Central park and the brick work in the lobby is an homage to a wall that I have personally witnessed at the Louisiana Museum outside of Copenhagen.
