FMDC were involved in the selection and assessment of the 7000 panels of book matched translucent veined Portuguese marble that make up the facades of this building. The 12 mm thick stone material was laminated between two leaves of glass and incorporated into the cladding system by façade sub-contractor Gartner.
The building skin glows amber on the inside during the day and at night the glow is reversed and seen from the outside, delivering a stunning effect for a truly unique and iconic building.
Bruno was present at the opening ceremony at the kind invitation of Warren Elghanayan and Leslie Koch, hosted by Mike Bloomberg, as well as the current Mayor of the City of New York, the Governor of New York and Ronald Perelman.
