MoMA Tower

The 77-story tower at 53 West 53rd Street is set on a narrow, 17,000 sf site directly west of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). In order to provide an additional 50,000 sf of exhibition space to its existing 125,000 sf facilities, the museum will expand into the lower portions of the new building. The building is also designed to house a “seven-star” hotel, super luxury condominiums, a sunken restaurant and bar, and a bridge connecting the entrances on 53rd Street and 54th Street.

Bullet 77-story concrete structure
 
 

Towering  above street level with a slenderness ratio of height to width in excess of 12, the structure typically consists of reinforced cast-in-place concrete flat plates supported by concrete shear walls, a limited number of interior concrete columns and a concrete diagrid system at the façade/perimeter. The diagrid system is conformed by vertical, diagonal and horizontal elements that complement the aesthetic design of the unsystematic lines of the curtain wall system of the façade. The building has 3 levels below grade and it is supported by a combination of spread footings and drilled caissons.
