Hearst Tower

1.  
Welcome home, O, The Oprah Magazine and all of Hearst publications.

Hearst Tower
Designed by famed architect Lord Norman Foster, the new Hearst Tower has an innovative "diagrid" system (a word contraction of diagonal grid), that creates a series of four-story triangles on the façade. No verticle steel beams are being used, which is a first for a North American office tower.

The tower climbs out of the original facade of the Hearst building, which was built by William Randolph Hearst in 1928. He intended to build a skyscraper, but was delayed by the Great Depression.

The O, The Oprah Magazine staff doesn't even have to leave the building to get great food—Cafe 57 is located on the third floor.

Thanks to the super-high roof and glass ceilings our Cafe 57 dining room almost feels like an outdoor eatery.
Ice Falls

Hearst's roof has been designed to collect rainwater. Some of that water is utilized for Ice Falls, a three-story, sculpted water feature within the building's atrium.
