The Bryant is a 32-storey tower overlooking Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan and containing a hotel and private residences. The building follows the traditional tripartite composition of the New York tower: base, middle and crown. The concrete façade relates to the historic buildings nearby by containing different stone aggregates. Polished precast concrete slabs and columns follow a tectonic grid, lending the building a classical appearance. These elements extend into the interior spaces, reflecting the building structure and reinforcing a sense of architectural substance and identity.
