* Architecture: Hearst Tower by Foster and Partners

Architecture: Hearst Tower by Foster and Partners: '“..The building’s symmetrically jagged silhouette is easily recognizable in its surroundings. The diagrid facade comprised of triangulated steel frame was designed to use 21% less steel than traditional buildings of it’s type. Also impressive is the statistic which states that 90% of the 10,480 tons of steel used is derived from recycled material..” Iconic Foster and Partners..

Hearst Tower: The six-story base of the headquarters building was commissioned by the founder, William Randolph Hearst and awarded to the architect Joseph Urban. Originally built as the base for a proposed skyscraper, the construction of the tower was postponed due to the Great Depression. The new tower addition was completed nearly eighty years later, and 2,000 Hearst employees moved in on 4 May 2006.

The U.S. Green Building Council (UCGBC) recently awarded Hearst Tower, one of the first green office buildings in New York City, a LEED Gold certification for new construction and a LEED Platinum award—the highest possible rating for sustainable building operations and best maintenance practices.
