Master architect Midtown Tower, Midtown East, Midtown West Design

We were particularly fastidious about creating a complex where people can readily gather and savor the space around them. The basic concept was the layout of a traditional Japanese garden, which symbolizes the universe. The high-rise towers here represent the large rock structures found at the center of such gardens, while the buildings around them serve to further embody the Japanese-style sense of harmony. (David Childs, SOM)
