Sculpted by the angles of the sun, Solar Carve explores how shaping architecture in response to solar access and other site-specific criteria can expand its positive impact. The building takes its unique form from the geometric relationships between the allowable envelope and the sun's path, producing a faceted, gem-like facade that privileges light, fresh air, and river views to the public park-while also becoming a new iconic silhouette on the New York skyline.
