Jean Nouvel. Residences at 100 11th Ave

In Chelsea's waterfront, Jean Nouvel's 2nd building in NY is right in front of Ghery's IAC headquarters

Here is a selection of pictures I've taken by october 2010

The balconies on the lower floors are disguised behind the steel structure, creating an intriging layout of gardens. This view from the entrance is much more interesting than the street view

These are the stairs to the entrance
The side facade and the front ones have two different languages. I didn't like this, it lacks authenticity, the facade acts like a mask and the building looses it's strength.

  1. The pictures you took provide all the interesting perspectives! They are great to see, it's like being there in person!
    Maybe they ran out of time or budget to complete the side of the building?


please let us know what you think or know about the project
