New View: Evolving Los Angeles Downtown Skyline

A new skyscraper seeks to be the tallest building in the city and west United States. The tower is purposefully planning on holding the record of tallest. Di Marzio Kato Architects is designing the project in downtown Los Angeles at Figueroa and Third. The developer is Shenzhen New World Group. 

The simple yet elegant composition of reduced ultra-violet glazing provides an innovative design resembling "sliver towers."

"“The building is simple [and] elegant” with a composition of low-e glass (which reduces the amount of ultraviolet light that passes through it) and steel."
