Sliding down the sides of two new neighbouring skyscrapers, the Observation Deck Proposal by SOM Architects entices with its futuristic aesthetic.

The moving deck is meant to improve the cityscape surrounding New York's famous Grand Central Terminal. This proposed new deck would glide up and down the sides of two new skyscrapers and revolutionize the space that surrounds the city and make for a dynamic addition to the 100-year-old urbane landmark.

This novel construction would provide a 360-degree panoramic view of the city and its skyline. According to Dezeen, "SOM suggests that the hovering deck would improve the quality of the public space around the building by offering an iconic landmark." The Observation Deck Proposal by SOM Architects will make for a modernistic addition to the metropolis that is New York and would add an economic stimulus as a tourist attraction that amazes.
