TimeOdd Stories - Skyscraper

This is The Big Bend, a revolutionary curved skyscraper to be built on New York City’s 57th Street

Manhattan’s skyline is about to get thrown for a loop – literally. Plans have officially been unveiled to construct the world’s first U-shaped skyscraper in New York City, and it’s going to push the limits of architecture above the curve.

The Big Bend is an ambitious project being carried out by Oiio Studio, a world-renowned design team previously confronted by the city’s land usage restrictions. “If we manage to bend our structure instead of bending the zoning rules of New York we would be able to create one of the most prestigious buildings in Manhattan,” they wrote on their official website about their plan to circumvent the laws by building long instead of tall.

If carried out successfully, The Big Bend will end up becoming the longest building in the world, surpassing even Dubai’s Burj Khalifa in total length. The building will require an elevator system that can travel in loops and curves to scale its unique shape, which sounds somewhat like a rollercoaster. We don’t yet know when to expect this world wonder on 57th Street, but we’re bending over backwards to stay patient.

The structure, designed by Oiio Studio, uses space effectively with its unique U-shape.But doesn’t skimp on capacity, and is simply built long, rather than tall. The Big Bend will, in fact, become the longest building in the world, surpassing even Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

It was designed to circumvent strict New York zoning laws, which limit the height of buildings in the city. The building will require an elevator system that curves and loops just like the tower.

The construction date is unknown, but The Big Bend will take Manhattan’s skyline above the curve when it arrives.
