    Exclamation Curtain Wall Mockup: 100 11th

    At this point there is only excavation work going on at the site. If you do want a glimpse of the finished product: go to the showroom ,you can view a large (about 30' X15' feet) mockup of the curtain wall.

    ^ More interesting variations on the Modernist theme of curtain wall. Will this one leak?

    Not if they make sure to use only good glass.

    Now that I take a closer look, I think it's The Standard. The Caledonia crane is already down.

    Exclamation Open-Air Showroom: 100 11th

    As I was walking past the 100 11th sales office and I was surprised to see that the showrooms’ front window is actually a garage-door type of partition that opens up to the sidewalk; it was a great opportunity for me to view the scale model and full sized mock-up of the curtain wall.

    I've always been curious how the north and east sides of the building will look, so I decided to stop by the showroom for a look. Nice to see windows here, but I'm still undecided about all that black.

    Among its peers in this starchitecture-elite neighborhood, the Vision's BLACK will turn the competition pale in comparison. In the very early morning as dawn awakens and in the early evening dusk as sun sets, the windows will twinkle like stars as their inhabitants move about. Down south on the Island, the Beaver stares and glares with contempt and envy . . . its cheap OZ flecks a fool's gold against the superior machinations of this Vision Machine!

    Thumbs up ^

    Made me laugh, and I agree. The back of the building looks like a painting of NYC at night. Can't wait to see it done.

    In the shot of the model below the surface looks silvery ---

    Is the answer maybe that the curved window-mosaic side will be silvery and the flat sides will be black?

    Wow! I like the black backside more than the glassy front. Wonder what material they'll use.

    I love the window arrangement on the backside! This is residential architecture at its best.
