The atrium wall is carved into the façade which visually anchors the building to the High Line as you approach from the south, creating a light-filled vertical campus for the company. From the north, the lobby wall protrudes as a prism into the main plaza, tying into the High Line, while it also dives down
HOW IT`S DONE
Swaging is a common application of cold working, a method of plastically deforming metal in a controlled fashion at room temperature to create new geometry and stronger, harder material in the affected area. When used to apply fittings to stranded cables, the cable end is inserted into the swage shank. The shank is then cold-formed around the cable. In the swaging process, the material of the swage fitting literally flows into the cable interstices, forming a mechanical lock between the two components. This fabrication method is used to connect many of our wire rope and structural strand end fittings.
