Hearst Tower

Diagrid design: situated near Central Park in New York, the 46-storey skyscraper of the media group Hearst stretches 182 metres into the sky. Foster + Partners used the existing Art Déco building dating back to 1928 as the base for the new tower. Media magnate William Randolph Hearst had actually planned on building a skyscraper way back then. Today the building plays with architectural history: a network of diagonal steel girders, visible for miles, covers the glass façade of the crystalline-looking tower which appears to arise from the historical walls.
