A New York architectural firm has proposed a creative way to bend the city’s restrictive property zoning rules with a new curved skyscraper that aims to be the world’s longest building.

The Big Bend will measure 1.22km in length from end to end – features a striking U-shaped bend at its highest central point.

The new building will also feature a lift that can “travel in curves”, moving both vertically and horizontally in continuous loops along the length of the glass-lined tower.

Overlooking Central Park, The Big Bend would join area of luxury skyscrapers in the city known as “Billionaires’ Row”.

The Big Bend does not currently have planning permission and may never be built, but we think it’s pretty cool!
