Archtober Building of the Day: 40 Bond

7 October 2012 from 12pm to 1pm

40 Bond is Herzog & de Meuron's first apartment building in New York. The building’s use, mass and volume was negotiated with New York officials over several years, planned from 2004 - 2005 and realized from 2006 - 2007. Herzog & de Meuron's idea for the design of 28 condominiums was to stack two distinct typologies for living - the townhouse and the apartment block. Its design is a reinvention of the cast-iron building found through NoHo and SoHo. The structure of the building is pushed to the exterior and follows the grid of the large floor-to-ceiling window bays. Characteristic for the building is the curved glass cover which wraps over the structure and can be read as a continuation of the windowpanes, as well as the heavy cast aluminium graffiti gate which acts as a physical barrier, as well as a visual screen.

Philip Schmerbeck, Associate and Project Director, at Herzog & de Meuron's New York office will lead the visit. Recently he has been working on the Parrish Art Museum which will be open this Fall.
