OMA's proposal for mega project 425 park avenue posited an a brancusi-like form whose facets twist amid the manhattan grid. in keeping with the city's zoning laws, the design occupies the liminal space between orthogonality and serpentine curves by rotating the setback planes. to escape the pragmatic manhattan aesthetic of stretched pyramid, the building is composed of three stacked cubes rotated 45 degrees to reflect the cityscape and the sky. the result is a structure that escapes the the geometry of the city, while keeping 25% of the existing building.
