Construction on 111 West 57th Street has reached its first setback on the 45th floor. SHoP Architect’s design for the project features 12 setbacks, with a transparent glass curtain on the northern and southern facades, and terracotta cladding and bronze latticework on the eastern and western facades. The terracotta façade is installed up to the 33rd floor, and already proving to interact with the sun to create interesting shadows and reflections of light. In order to minimize the movement and vibrations of the tower, an 800-ton tuned mass damper will top off the project.
