The Chelsea Nouvel building. Architect, Jean Nouvel. This beautiful residential building features over 1650 different windowpanes across it’s curved surface (it’s true, count them!) Each window is set at a unique angle and torque. The result from the exterior is 1650 different reflections. Described as ‘a vision machine’, the Chelsea Nouvel’s windowpanes comprise the most highly engineered and complex curtain wall ever constructed in Manhattan.
I think the coolest thing about the building is it looks different depending upon the time off day you walk past it. There is also a dramatic change in it’s reflections as the four seasons in NYC change.
