Rem Koolhaas disciple Bjarke Ingels unveils Wild Pyramid in Hells Kitchen

 Rising Danish architect superstar Bjarke Ingels‘s pyramid-like apartment building planned on far West 57th Street was formally revealed over the weekend.
 

The  talented 36-year-old Rem Koolhaas disciple is ready to introduce his magical mystery mountain  to the people who might one day live inside it.
 
The full reveal is on the Bjarke Ingels Group site , and Ingels is profiled by Justin Davidson in this week’s New York magazine, which both grows the myth surrounding the hipstertect and reveals many of the details behind the high-rise set to go up next to the West Side Highway.


When asked about his mountain-type building he said, “They’re buildings that look different because they perform differently. They harvest resources — daylight, views — in different ways. What we try to do is maximize possibilities.

Before, you could choose a life in the city, and that would give you certain advantages, but it would be at the expense of parks and green spaces, fresh air and bicycle rides, or a private garden. And I think now in New York, and with projects like the Mountain and 8 House  we did in Copenhagen, we’re trying to offer some of the suburban advantages, like a house with a garden where your kids can go outside and hang around, and combine that with the services of a dense urban space.”
