Futuristic Skyscraper Design for Battery Park
Germany based architecture, Christian Hahn has designed the building to accommodate pedestrian traffic. He seeks the lively flow of people in the building’s core so that it feels alive.
The skyscraper design placed at Battery Park, Manhattan. The structure itself is a series of thick geometrical shapes arranged into a cohesive tall tower.
Each individual honeycomb is a parcel with several horizontal slats as floors that can hold different units. The massive tower has enough space to essentially act as its own city, with parcels being used as residences, offices, parks, retail space. The building will even house a police station, a fire station and a school.
Between the geometric shapes are vertical, angular streets that provide connection between the different floor plates. In designing the building, Hahn discovered that in designing streets for the structure, a series of hexagons provided the best flow.
Therefore, the building’s individual parcels are all roughly hexagonal in shape.
