Designed by BIG Architects and developed by Tishman Speyer, The Spiral is a mixed-use tower situated on the west side of Manhattan. The building extends the green space of the adjacent High Line vertically, wrapping around the building in a spiralling motion.
The film was used to launch the development and was presented by Bjarke Ingels. It features spiralling images from the natural world including giant galaxies, plants and human DNA alongside archive and aerial footage of New York and a 3d animation of the proposed building.
