88 Wood Street: Modern Modernism

Three building blocks of varying height  maintain a visual dialogue with the historic properties surrounding the site. These blocks are connnected by a narrow, glazed – and dizzyingly tall – circulation towers. Stainless steel cross bracing and exposed support columns express the buildings structure, in keeping with the basic credo of modernism, but brightly painted ductwork and stairways are reminders that 21st century modernism is neither as stripped down nor as serious as high modernism.
