A Can't-Believe Cantilever


Here's a super-cool residential tower currently under construction in New York City.

The design is based on a stack of cantilevered floors (a cantilever is a beam supported on just one side). Cantilevers are an enduring architectural convention. Probably the most famous example of cantilever archtecture is Fallingwater, by Frank Lloyd Wright, a residence built over a waterfall.

The purest example of cantilever architecture is a tree. Each branch represents a cantilever from the trunk. If the branch is thick enough and short enough, we all know it will support a tremendous amount of weight.

That's why this building by the office of Rem Koolhaas (is there a better name in architecture?) won't fall down, despite looking a little rickety.

If you're in NYC, head down to 23 East 22nd St. The tower should be finished in 2010.
