Here are new images of 100 11th Avenue, a residential tower in Chelsea, New York, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and which recently broke ground.

  • Thanks so much for posting this; I haven’t seen this yet. I think I like it. I’m not the hugest all over glass building fan, but the interior specs are beautiful. Great post.

  • I do feel it like as a hotel instead of a home space.

    Is it a hotel?

  • cla

    Hopefully the terrace/hanging gardens will work properly in this building. Don’t wanna see untended gardens dying etc. The lights from the first photo reminds me of Las Vegas tho…don’t know it thats a good thing.

  • the facade is quite interesting

  • pla

    The building looks messy.
    Interior space looks messy.
    The shifting squares looks out of date design-wise. Feels like the 90s. Too much time invested in making something complex with little aesthetic (or otherwise) gain.

    i’m a fan of Jean Nouvel.According to me he is one of the most famous architects around the world.This work is great because of its exterior is enclosed by the glass door-frames which are arranged by harmony and impression that in accordance with the surrounding urban environment.I really admire Jean Nouvel and his works

  • He live up to my expectation absolutly ! :) so cool
