100 Eleventh Avenue, New York
Large Version

Today another example of remarkable architecture in the big cities.
Walking on the high line, the fascinating promenade in West Manhattan, New York you can see this remarkable façade designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel. There are people who like this more than the Chrysler Building, the Flatiron or the building of Frank Gehry in NY.
Anyway: It is a remarkable, fascinating and beautiful building.


100 Eleventh Avenue is a 23-story residential tower at the intersection of 19th Street and the West Side Highway in the borough of Manhattan. The building is described as “a vision machine” by the architect Jean Nouvel. It has one of the most technologically advanced curtain wall systems in New York City, but also refers to West Chelsea masonry industrial architectural traditions.
Jean Nouvel, born 12 August 1945) is a French architect. Nouvel studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and was a founding member of Mars 1976 and Syndicat de l'Architecture. He has obtained a number of prestigious distinctions over the course of his career, including the Aga Khan Award for Architecture (technically, the prize was awarded for the Institut du Monde Arabe which Nouvel designed), the Wolf Prize in Arts in 2005 and the Pritzker Prize in 2008.
