LVMH Tower

contributed by piotr_krajewski

Appearing as a traditional skyscraper viewed through a broken glass bottle, the LVMH Tower is one of the skyscrapers that brings the 1990s bulge-and-bend style to New York. The building certainly complements its original owner, a Parisian maker of upscale cosmetics, perfumes and luggage. Much like a model on a runway, the LVMH Tower stands tall in graceful style while making the dark slabs that surround it look plain and boring by comparison. It has been compared to a lily in an alley. And like a model, it's more flash than reality. The building is only 23 storeys tall, but makes use of its curving lines and gentle setback to create forced perspective and appear much taller. This illusion is enhanced by the fact that the building's lot is only 60 feet by 100 feet (text from http://www.nyc-architecture.com/).
