A U-Shaped Skyscraper for Manhattan?

Oiio, an architecture studio based in New York, is about to build the longest skyscraper in the world. The have plans for a building called „The Big Bend„. As the zoning laws in New York led to some strange tricks developers use to maximize the height of their building, Oiio’s architects came up with the idea to replace „height“ by „length“: „If we manage to bend our structure instead of bending the zoning rules of New York we would be able to create one of the most prestigious buildings in Manhattan.“
