Jean Nouvel’s Machine for Living 

Jean Nouvel’s “Vision Machine” a 23-storey residential tower located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan along the Hudson River has begun construction. The stunning building which features a Mondrian-like curtain wall comprised of nearly 1,700 different size panes of glass that change character according to lighting conditions, is, according to its architect, a direct conceptual and material descendent of his Arab World Institute in Paris, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The building, which stands next to the recently completed, Gehry-designed Interactive Corporation headquarters, will contain 72 residences that will range in size from 890 square feet to 4,675 square feet. The buildings top floor will be a single grand residence with a full rooftop terrace. Each unit will have a sparely designed top of line kitchen and baths. At the base of the building is a dramatic lobby space with 20-foot high ceilings. It will a concierge, a ground floor restaurant and dining patio, a residents’ mail room, package and refrigerated storage room, access to a garden and a private elevator landing serving the residences above and the pool, gym and spa areas below. At 70 feet long, the building’s mirror-canopied pool will be one of the largest in Manhattan. Prices for the units will range from US $1.6 million to $22 million. The building will be LEED certified. Beyer Blinder Belle is serving as executive architect for the project.
