'Solar carving' glass curtain wall on 40 tenth avenue,New York


The glass curtain wall of ‘40 tenth’ — the 12-story office building is now complete ahead of the development’s opening in 2019. This project, currently under construction adjacent to new york’s high line, is characterized by its gem-like façade, which has been shaped and engineered to eliminate shadows.

The building’s curtain wall is comprised of 12 different types of glass, including high-performance glass with low-iron, it has been geometrically optimized into a pattern of three-dimensional facets that articulate the carved sections of the tower. each curtain wall unit consists of a central diamond-shaped panel tiling downward, surrounded by four triangular pieces that are perpendicular to the slab to achieve typical stack joints. this seeks to block sun glare and heat gain, while creating dynamic corner workspaces.

Future tenants of the building, which is slated for completion in early 2019, will have panoramic views of the hudson river and manhattan. the scheme comprises over 20,000 square feet of outdoor space, including a 10,000-square-foot shared roof deck, 8,000-square-foot second-floor outdoor space adjacent to the high line, and eight floors with private outdoor space.
