Proposed NYC Transit Hub Looks Like a Giant Sea Monster

New, 1 comment

Designed by NYC-based architects Chad kellogg and Matt Bowles of AMLGM, this tubular sea monster of transit hub could someday terrorize the people of Queens, N.Y.—at least according to the team's proposed plans. Called the Urban Alloy Towers, the mixed-use development won Metropolis Magazine's 2014 Living Cities Competition, and is made to be sheathed in a very cool "flexible skin made of metal fins that each have a specific solar orientation." Inside the towers would house retail space, subway lines, and Jetsons-style residences—because really, who doesn't want to live in a combination mall and subway station? Like all utterly outlandish renderings, the odds that this massive structure will actually be built aren't all that high, but do take a look:
