Danish architect Bjarke Ingels is making use of the wonders of spiral architecture for The Spiral, an aptly named skyscraper that is set to be constructed around the Hudson Yards development of New York City.

The Spiral will be located along the strip of 57th Street that is aptly dubbed Millionaire's Row. What's unique about this skyscraper is that it will use an artificial foundation that will effectively create a high-hanging neighborhood that will be suspended above a train yard. This is indeed an interesting 'twist' on typical examples of spiral architecture.

This skyscraper will strictly incorporate office and retail space and is expected to integrate a variety of green infrastructure elements, making this a welcome addition to the New York City skyline.
