When it was announced earlier this month that Foster + Partners had triumphed in the starchitect throw-down to design 425 Park Avenue , we wondered how the winning design matched up against the runners-ups. L&L Holding has recently released the renderings from the competition’s three other finalists, and you may have heard of them: Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers, and Rem Koolhaas. Foster’s design was officially presented yesterday at the Municipal Art’s Society Summit for New York City, where an exhibition of the four tower designs will also be on view. Seen together, the contrasts are startling, if not unexpected. Foster’s design is stately, elegant, and kinda boring, Zaha’s dips and curves, Rem’s does a programmatic twist, and Rogers’ is, well, vintage Rogers. They each present very different visions for Park Avenue’s newest skyscraper. Click on through for the slideshow!
