Pyramids in 2016?
Are we experiencing an Egyptian reincarnation?
No they are not Egyptians. They are a Swiss, a Danish and a Belgian architect who are revisiting the pyramids to give shape to offices and housing.
The Tour Triangle in Paris is poised to become a new point of reference on the metropolitan skyline. The architect intent is to present dynamic perceptions, sparkling a long distance dialogue with Tour Eiffel and giving a new visibility to Place de la Porte de Versailles. (Architect: Herzog & de Meuron
In Manhattan, architect Bjarke Ingels is also completing a pyramidal building near the Hudson river. This building has the advantage of lessening its effect of the neighbooring buildings giving its own appartments better exposure and amazing, extraordinary panoramic views. From the street it looks like a glass spire, from the river it seems as a pyramid.
In Helsinki, Julien de Smedt, built a pyramid named Sato. It’s a 3 tower residential complex connected by a special terrace covering with saunas and gardens… (I am moving there!!)
