A proposed Brancusi-shape-inspired tower in Manhattan is on the way to revolutionize the world of art and architecture

           After the series of ultra-slender skyscrapers under construction on the billionaires’ row, New York, near the 57th street and the 6th avenue, a new proposed skyscraper is pushing the boundaries of architecture and design even further

           George Lucian, responsible for the exterior, together with Hannah Hombergen, who designed the interior, a team of young designers, propose a skyscraper design to complete the future skyline of Manhattan, trying to create probably one of the  most iconic future buildings in the world

          The envisioned location of the building is just a suggestion of the design team

          Height: 450 meters, Floors: 60

          The exterior is inspired by one of the sculptures of the world-renowned Romanian sculptor, Constantin Brancusi, whose permanent exhibition is just a couple of streets away at the MOMA NY

         Covered in copper/bronze/terracotta and similar look-alike materials, the building would offer dramatic views at each sunset

          It is designed to be a residential building, offering the highest level of luxury and exclusivity for the future owners

          The Vertical Yacht, the name of the building, is drawn from the shape of the building but also from its interiors which are inspired from the interiors of super yachts, creating a special and ultra-luxurious atmosphere and lifestyle for its residents

          Each of the envisioned apartments, as seen in the interior images, would offer a 360-degree view over the skyline of New York, including the Central Park

          George Lucian is a designer-artist, based in Nice and Monaco, whose futuristic yacht concepts are published all over the world

          Hannah Hombergen is an established interior super yacht designer, involved in the design of some of the world’s largest yachts built recently
