Architect-developer Cary Tamarkin plans to build what he calls a "concrete anchor," a 10-story, geometrical condominium in New York City near the High Line Park. He chose concrete, because it "reveals the hand of the maker," and chose the geometric shape because it will be a contrast to the metal buildings on either side that "dance and curve." The building "will have ribbons of architectural concrete between rows of oversize casement windows."
