Planned for construction on 57th Street in New York City, the new project could initiate a new era in modern architecture.

Dubbed "Big Bend," the project shifts the focus from traditional skyscraper height to length. Designed by Oiio Studio, this revolutionary structure will create a massive two-kilometer-long curve to create an unique take on the New York skyline.


If realized, the Big Bend project will become the tallest structure in the world.

This U-shaped skyscraper, planned to be two kilometers long, will surpass the length of the current tallest building, the Burj Khalifa

The unique design of Big Bend balances the building's weight with a special structure, allowing the building to pass the 600 metres threshold to a 2 kilometres of height.

Movement within the building will be facilitated by a complex elevator system that can move horizontally, vertically, and circularly. This innovative elevator system will make it easy to reach every point in the building, offering the occupants with a unique experience.


Buildings constructed with increased length offer numerous benefits. The Big Bend project provides a creative solution to Manhattan's height restrictions by creating more space for new millionaires on 57th Street.

This space will be filled with luxury apartments, offices, and commercial areas, creating a new living and working environment in one of the city's most prestigious areas.

The design of Big Bend also incorporates eco-friendly and sustainable building technologies. Renewable energy sources will be used to achieve energy efficiency, minimizing environmental impacts. In this way, Big Bend will set an example for the green buildings of the future.

Although not yet approved, if this U-shaped skyscraper is constructed, it could revolutionize modern architectural concepts. Big Bend stands out as a project that could influence architectural trends not only in Manhattan but worldwide.
