Radio Hotel and Tower is the first completed building by MVRDV in the United States. The distinctive design comprises a stack of blocks that match the size of the buildings in the immediate context, clad in eight different colours of glazed brick. The building has a dramatic impact on the skyline of upper Manhattan, yet its design responds sensitively to the neighbourhood and adds much-needed hotel, office, and hospitality amenities that were missing.
