53W53 (53 West 53rd Street)

Jean Nouvel’s futuristic supertall condo above MoMa is a new landmark on the Manhattan skyline.

Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel, 53W53, located at 53 West 53rd Street, is an ultra-modern condominium rising 1,050 feet above the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa). Classified among the supertalls that define Billionaire’s Row, even though the tower is located below 57th Street, 53W53 comprises 161 residences that are among the priciest in NYC. The building incorporates a significant expansion for the museum at the base.

53W53’s architecture is defined by an exposed structural system, known as “the diagrid,” that creates an angular, sculptural form.  The interiors were designed by Thierry Despont.
