MoMA's 53 West 53
The striking gray metal exterior has a noticeable difference as it emerges over the surrounding buildings. At the 60th floor, the building splits into three different apexes with gradient finishes. With a total 14 different coats of gold, the shortest apex gradually becomes more and more gold as it scales the remaining floors. Reaching the highest point of the skyscraper, the middle apex climbs with 16 shades of black. Completing the combination of 44 colors, the third apex is comprised of 14 shades of silver.
