When it comes to far-out skyscraper designs, this one takes some beating. Eye-popping renderings have been unveiled for a 210 metres sci-fi-style New York skyscraper that almost looks like it has been fashioned from Play-Doh, with twisting tube-like structures coiled inside a towering frame. The organic design has been dreamt-up by Turkish architecture firm Hayri Atak Architectural Design Studio, which described the structure as ‘amorphous’ and having a ‘transparent, ghostly stance in the city skyline’. The studio hasn’t disclosed what it thinks it would cost to build, but it’s safe to say that it would be in the region of ‘a lot’. The Turkish design house has made jaw-dropping designs a speciality. MailOnline reported in 2019 on its breathtaking concept for a gravity-defying hotel that hangs off the 1,982-foot-high Preikestolen cliff edge in Norway. The studio hasn’t disclosed what it thinks it would cost to build, but it’s safe to say that it would be in the region of ‘a lot’ The design’s stand-out feature is a nerve-shredding cantilevered glass-bottomed swimming pool that would jut out over the stunning Lysefjorden. The studio’s wacky New York design follows several other extreme skyscraper proposals for the city. In 2017, a concept was unveiled for ‘The Big Bend’, a slender U-shaped tower that would transform Manhattan’s skyline. Described as the ‘longest building in the world’ and stretching 4,000ft in length, the project’s concept drawings reveal a skyscraper reaching an apex then curving back down. The concept, designed by Oiio and planned to straddle Billionaire’s Row on 57th Street, features an elevator system that could travel in curves, horizontally and in loops. Meanwhile, another extreme design that is actually coming to fruition – due to open this year – is the 91-story, 1,420-foot-high 111 West 57th Street skyscraper, which reaches around a quarter of a mile into the sky. It is the second-tallest residential skyscraper in the western hemisphere, with the nearby Central Park Tower being number one at 1,548ft tall. Prices for the 60-odd condominiums inside 11 West 57th Street start at $15.5million, with the penthouse listed for $59 million. It was designed by New York-based Shop Architects.
