Architect Mark Foster Gage recently released a proposal design protesting what he calls “boxes clad in steel and glass.” M.F.G and his team gave the nickname “The Khaleesi” for the proposed building for 41 W 57th St. The exterior covered in detailed gargoyles and really does look well-suited for the mother of dragons. The 102-story residential building will offer breathtaking views of Central Park. Gage says “the goal was high levels of detail… High Resolution Architecture”.
Gage is against the architectural community focusing on the economy over art. Gage, who has been teaching architecture and design at Yale for more than 10 years, believes that “Good design can be easy. Fun design can be easy. Great design is difficult.”
