Jean Nouvel’s Massive MoMA ‘Death Spire’ Plan Back on Track
Posted By Diane Pham On August 6, 2011 @ 1:20 pm In Architecture,New York City,News | No Comments
Plans for Jean Nouvel ’s Death Spire (Torre Verre) atop the Museum of Modern Art  were thought to have met their demise in 2009, but lo and behold the spire will rise again! Development giant Hines  has taken the project into their own hands and will head the efforts to get Nouvel’s structure built. Hines managed to re-file the plans in accordance with the Commission’s standards and now the structure does not require public approval. Granted the design has been cut down about 200 feet — formerly 1,250 feet to now 1,050 — you should still expect to see the new Nouvel make its mark on NYC’s skyline in the near future.
