Thread: turning boxes: where?

    Default turning boxes: where?

    Hi guys

    once i saw this rendering of a building made by blocks like squared boxes, one on top of the other, shifted and turned. It should be in Harlem, but not sure. A friend of mine told me was the 'turning torso' by calatrava, but the shape and the city are both completely different...
    thanks in advance

    could he mean the project that was proposed near the brooklyn bridge?...Tall, boxes, that were rotated around a central core?

    but it's not 80th south, it's very different. Were not cube but more parallelepid ( i mean the apt were not so high as far as i remember) and were not so detached.

    It was something like the Rubik's cube, when you shift the sides. I think i had seen the progect also here on this forum. and i thought was in harlem, but not sure
    thanks a lot
