53 West 53rd MoMA Tower Wins Hot-Dip Galvanizing Award
The 53W53 MoMA Tower has received the 2019 Excellence in Hot-Dip Galvanizing Award for Building and Architecture. Congratulations to everyone involved with this NYC midtown masterpiece! With a dark lattice facade, the iconic building will house exhibits from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on the first three floors and will offer ultra-luxury condominiums with spectacular views of Central Park above.
“A lattice-like pattern weaves across the building giving it personality and increased structural security, something which was of upmost concern to the engineers. Considering the height of the building and location, constant maintenance was not an option. Hot-dip galvanized steel was the perfect choice for its low maintenance, durability and visual appeal for the facade panels of the upper floors. Hot-dip galvanized steel is doing its part to provide stunning, obstructed views of Central Park from this new iconic building.”
