Christian De Portzamparc
Lvmh Tower, New York, 1994-1999



For their New York offices, the famous French manufacturers of luxury accessories demanded adequate representation and facilities that lived up to their name.

Christian De Portzamparc<br> Lvmh Tower, New York, 1994-1999 But the big surprise in the building is on the twenty-second floor, the access to the top part of the tower, with a broad view over the city reaching as far as the Hudson River to the west.
The two-floor events room, referred to as the "Magic Room", is completely glassed-in with sunshades.

Portzamparc has come up with an intelligent response to the lack of building space in New York, adapting his building perfectly to Manhattan?s building code governing height and volume.
He manages to come up with a very interesting multifunctional building, a sort of light over the city; with the aid of precious treatment of materials and unusual forms, he has created a building that could be called a masterpiece of contemporary gothic.
