Edgar Street Towers by IwamotoScott



Edgar Street Towers, Lower Manhattan, IwamotoScott, futuristic architecture, American architecture
The design for Edgar Street Towers is inspired by visionary projects for Manhattan that proposed new hybrids of architecture, infrastructure and public space. The towers’ design aims to re-establish Edgar Street as an east-west public way, reconnecting Greenwich and Washington streets.
The space of this passageway through the building twists upwards, rising through the body of the towers, pinching at the mid level to allow for larger floor plates, and culminating at a rooftop sky lobby and civic space. This space at the towers’ crown is aligned with the primary Manhattan street grid to the north, directly on axis with 5th Avenue. The Towers will host living, working spaces, various areas for art, performance, retail and a branch public library. The central atrium enhanced by daylight will house bio-filtration terrariums, functioning as the building’s lungs to provide clean air to its occupants.
The dynamic form of the construction will definitely serve as an urban landmark for the city residents and tourists.
