33 Mackenzie Tower, Cyberpunk Architecture

Although the designers cite the “the feathers of Metatron” as inspiration, this building looks like something straight out of a Gibson-esque vision of Cyberpunk metropolis.  It is not without a certain beauty, but it is really hard to look at.


The stark white tower can be seen from afar as it easily competes to standout in the cityscape. “The buildings are clad in Metatron’s feathers,” the architects explained “at the lower levels, the loose feathers wrap around all four sides of the podium, forming a sunshade around the bronze glass. The upper levels of the tower are abutted with white concrete panels that also feature feather-like forms, giving them nap and grain. Balconies are recessed into the tower blocks so that the eye reads the full form.”


Beyond the striking exteriors, the architects outfitted the entry way and interiors with a contrasting pallet of colors and materials, this is when, as the architects concept goes, “you open Pandora’s box and ascendance shifts to transcendence.” In the lobby, infinite mirrors create the sensation of a body suspended in space, and a sophisticated lighting system adds to the experience.
