FACED WITH THE INCREASINGLY SERIOUS PROBLEM OF CLIMATE CHANGE DUE TO HUMAN ACTIVITY AND CO2 EMISSIONS, THE BASIC IDEA OF THE WARP 9TH AVE PROJECT IS TO CREATE A HUMAN HABITAT THAT PLAYS AN ACTIVE ROLE IN BRINGING BACK THE QUALITY OF THE AIR TO THE VALUES OF THE PRE-INDUSTRIAL ERA.
THE CONSTRUCTION FULFILLS THE DUAL TASK OF HOSTING HUMAN ACTIVITY, WITH NUMEROUS COMMON AREAS AND CULTURAL ACTIVITIES, AND “RE-TERRAFORMING” THE PLANET BY FILTERING THE AIR OF THE TYPICAL WIND PUSH ON A TALL BUILDING, CHANNELING IT INTO A PURIFICATION DUCT.
THE SHAPE OF THE BUILDING IS THEREFORE DESIGNED TO OFFER MORE POINTS OF VIEW FROM THE 9TH AVENUE ACROSS THE BUILDING AND TWO PAORAMIC AREAS, ONE OVERLOOKING THE ROOFTOPS OF HELL’S KITCHEN AND ONE ON THE MIDTOWN-HELL’S KITCHEN-HUDSON AXIS. THE DEFORMATION OF THE FAÇADE FINALLY ALLOWS THE FLOW OF AIR THROUGH THE PURIFICATION DUCT.

POSTI DI FRONTE AL PROBLEMA SEMPRE PIÙ GRAVE DEL
CAMBIAMENTO CLIMATICO DOVUTO ALL’ATTIVITÀ UMANA E ALLE
EMISSIONI DI CO2, L’IDEA DI BASE DEL PROGETTO “NEW YORK
VERTICAL CITY TOWER” È QUELLA DI CREARE UN HABITAT CHE
SVOLGA UN RUOLO ATTIVO NEL RIPORTARE LA QUALITÀ DELL’ARIA
AI VALORI DELL’ ERA PRE-INDUSTRIALE.
L’EDIFICIO ASSOLVE IL DUPLICE COMPITO DI OSPITARE LE VARIE
ATTIVITÀ DELL’UOMO, CON NUMEROSE SPAZI COMUNI E ATTIVITÀ
CULTURALI E, ALLO STESSO TEMPO, “RI-TERRAFORMARE” IL PIANETA
FILTRANDO L’ARIA DELLA TIPICA SPINTA DEL VENTO SU UN EDIFICIO
ALTO, CANALIZZANDOLA IN UN CONDOTTO DI PURIFICAZIONE
SPECIALMENTE PROGETTATO.
LA FORMA DELL’EDIFICIO È QUINDI PROGETTATA PER OFFRIRE VARI
PUNTI DI VISTA DALLA 9TH AVENUE ATTRAVERSO IL GRATTACIELO
STESSO; SONO STATE POI PROGETTATE DUE AREE PANORAMICHE,
UNA CON VISTA SUI TETTI DEL QUARTIERE DI HELL’S KITCHEN E UNA
CON VISTA SULL’ASSE MIDTOWN-HELL’S KITCHEN-HUDSON.
LA DEFORMAZIONE DELLA FACCIATA CONSENTE INFINE AL FLUSSO
DI ARIA DI ATTRAVERSARE IL CONDOTTO DI PURIFICAZIONE IL
QUALE SISTEMA È BASATO SULL’EFFETTO CAMINO CHE SI FORMA
ALL’INTERNO DI ESSO, DOVUTO DAI VENTI DI ALTA QUOTA CHE
CREANO UN ASPIRAZIONE VERSO L’ALTO.
