Rafael Violy Architects (VAR) - Violy's creations not only represent some of the most luxurious and prominent buildings in Manhattan's Skyline such as 432 Park Avenue, 125 Greenwich, 277 Fifth Avenue, but also a complex level of engineering that blends with timeless design. Rafael Violy is a globally acclaimed architect with stunning projects all over the world, including Tokyo International Forum, The Curve Theater in London, 20 Fenchurch St. (famous walkie-talkie building in the UK). He has designed multiple airports, bridges, stadiums and several universities including the Princeton University Carl Icahn Laboratory and Princeton's Stadium.
'We consider design an integrated field in which programming, function, implementation, engineering, economic feasibility, and cultural impact are not independent concerns or disciplines but elements which should be equally evaluated and addressed. This approach requires versatility, expertise, and above all a pragmatic overview that expands the need for creativity rather than limits it.'
THE MASTERPIECE 7 levels plus roof deck with elevator, light and multiple outdoor spaces.
